The article reports that private landowners and groups have been awarded more than $5.7 million for voluntary conservation efforts benefiting endangered, threatened, or at-risk species. Selected proposals for conservation projects for ivory billed wood-pecker recovery would be awarded a grant of $800,000. According to the U.S. Interior Secretary Gale Norton, the Private Stewardship Grants Program would encourage citizens to participate in the development of on-the-ground solutions for the conservation of endangered animals by providing incentives. The funds are awarded on a comprehensive basis and requires recipients to raise at least 10 percent of their project's costs. The program is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
