Ill. receives $22 million for wildlife restoration

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Illinois is set to receive millions of dollars from a federal agency for fish and wildlife conservation efforts.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced on Tuesday that it’s giving $22 million to the state. Nationwide, they’re distributing more than $1 billion.

Officials say the funds help improve conservation and education on fishing and hunting in the Midwest. The money comes from tax revenues on fishers, hunters, and boaters.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources says they will use the money to fund current projects, including research on deer and catfish.

Since 2002, deer in Illinois have been found to have diseases affecting population. The state has been taking efforts to limit the spread of the diseases. The state is also monitoring the sustainability of catfish in the Wabash River.
