    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, 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.
