$14 million for wildlife conservation efforts in Indiana
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana is getting nearly $14 million in federal funds to assist wildlife conservation and outdoor recreation efforts.
The state Department of Natural Resources says Indiana's share of the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration fund is $13.9 million. The funds come from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services.
The money can be used by the states for wildlife management, public access for fishing, hunting and boating, hunter education, conservation land acquisition and similar programs.
The program has resulted in millions of acres of habitat saved and population increases in several species of fish.
The funds are generated from a tax on purchases of outdoor sporting goods.
