nd a nonprofit organization are teaming up to help provide water to New Mexico’s wildlife populations during the drought.
New Mexico Department of Game and Fish has made a one-time provision of $40,000 to New Mexico Department of Agriculture to help the state’s ranchers defray the extra cost of hauling or pumping water during the drought.
Game and Fish director Jim Lane and agricultural director/secretary Jeff Witte made the announcement during the mid-year meeting of the New Mexico Joint Stockmen, which is comprised largely of ranchers, earlier this month.
“Anytime a rancher provides water for his cattle, there will be wildlife that benefit from that water, also,” Lane said. “We recognize the contributions landowners make that go a long way toward keeping our wildlife healthy, especially during the drought, and this money is to say thank you for that.”
Game and Fish is primarily funded by the sale of licenses to hunt, fish and trap game species in the state, not by general taxpayer dollars.
