A fungal disease that has killed millions of North American bats is spreading and now has been detected in half of the United States, officials said Thursday.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is approving changes at a western Maryland wind farm to minimize harm to federally endangered Indiana bats.
State regulators have given conditional approval to a proposed wind power project in far western Maryland.
A proposed wind farm off Maryland’s shore could kill up to 20 bald eagles a year, according to federal regulators who have asked the developer to take steps to cut those numbers in a move that could affect developing the electricity source along the Eastern Seaboard.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says it is asking the public for information about two bald eagle deaths in Talbot County.
Federal authorities say an employee with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $26,000 from the government.
The Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge is acquiring more than 400 acres that will help support wildlife habitat management needs and maintain the region’s ecological diversity.
