The striking declines in insect populations, in addition to many other species, warrants an “all hands on deck” approach to conservation. Since 2015, the Rights-of-Way as Habitat Working Group has brought together organizations from across the U.S. and Canada to promote habitat on energy and transportation lands, such as rights-of-way (ROW). Beginning in 2018, a group of 40+ partners from across the energy and transportation sectors in the U.S., in collaboration with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, developed the first nationwide Candidate Conservation Agreement with Assurances (CCAA) to promote voluntary conservation of monarch butterfly habitat on energy and transportation lands. This presentation will introduce the Monarch CCAA and what it means for conservation. 

Learning objectives:

  • Explain why energy and transportation lands are crucial to habitat conservation.
  • Identify ways your local energy and transportation agencies can protect pollinators.
  • Learn how to communicate with your local energy and transportation agencies on what they can do to create and conserve habitat.

Hosted by ASLA’s Transportation Professional Practice Network (PPN).
