DoD Pacific Islands Threatened,
Endangered, and At-Risk Species
FEBRUARY 2010 WORKSHOP
DoD Workshop Enhances Threatened, Endangered, and At-Risk Species
Management in the Pacific Islands Region
DoD's Deputy Director for Natural Resources, L. Peter Boice, welcomed a diverse group of federal, state and non-governmental group representatives to the second Pacific Islands Region Threatened, Endangered, and At-Risk Species (TER-S) Workshop at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu.
The workshop, which ran from February 2-4, was a follow-up to a June 2006 TER-S workshop. As a direct result of that first workshop, DoD invested $6.75 million in new funding for TER-S research and management needs. This amount does not include the funds and contributed goods/services provided by project partners, or projects funded wholly by other groups, making the total on the ground impact even greater.
Projects resulting from the 2006 workshop significantly benefited species, and informed natural resources issues throughout the region.
