Applications for Ruby Habitat Enhancement Fund Project Proposals

pygmy-rabbitsDuring the course of permitting their natural gas pipeline project that crosses Nevada and three other western states, Ruby Pipeline LLC entered into three voluntary Cooperative Agreements to implement conservation measures for Sage Grouse and Pygmy Rabbits, Threatened and Endangered Species and Migratory Birds. The Nevada Department of Wildlife and the Bureau of Land Management entered into an agreement with Ruby Pipeline LLC and received $8.8 Million for habitat protection and enhancement and other conservation efforts for the benefit of Sage Grouse and Pygmy Rabbits.

The first set of projects was approved by review panels comprised of both agencies. Those projects which include: Pre and post construction pygmy rabbit monitoring, noxious weed treatments, sagebrush habitat restoration and sage grouse habitat use monitoring, account for the first $500,000 in projects. Additional projects are currently being reviewed. Proposals that meet the specific criteria of location and subject are welcome from the responsible public, environmental contractors, the University, and governmental agencies. Applications are available from either NDOW or the BLM. All funds must be obligated within five years.

A link to the forms required for consideration of a project can be found on this page. All projects must demonstrate a benefit to either sage grouse or pygmy rabbits and be located in Elko County, Humboldt County or the Surprise Field office boundary of Washoe County. At this time all projects must contain on-the-ground habitat enhancements such as reclamation (seeding or planting), weed treatment or juniper invasion control as examples.
