Here is the website for Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GNLCC) funding. Specific to the IP area:
Center for Large Landscape Conservation-Gary Tabor: $75,000 for Conserving an Intact and Connected GNLCC Landscape. From 2014 to 2016 Total Funds Allocated $190,000
Heart of the Rockes (HOR)-Michael Whitfield: $75,000 for Landscape Conservation Design in the High Divide. An Analysis of Future Landscape Scenarios and Their Viability. From 2015 to 2016 Total Funds Allocated $150,000.
This is your tax dollar paying these initiative leaders to implement their agenda for conservation over you. Also, the Whitfield is on the GNLCC Steering Committee, which has authority over projects. and Tabor is on the GNLCC Advisory Team. Isn't it interesting they have money directed back to their own initiatives?
