Stimulus Comes to Endangered Species


Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced the grant recipients on Tuesday…

The project… helps protect habitats for the Siler pincushion cactus, a rare plant endemic to the Utah/Arizona border area… threatened because of the rapid urbanization of the Dixie area. The complex also assists with the preservation of the desert tortoise.

That’s a two-fer – protect cactus AND tortoises. Too often we are asked to protect cactus OR tortoises. No longer. Thank you Secretary Salazar for all your good work protecting BOTH cactus AND tortoises. I’m an idiot.
