LA City Council members seek regional coordination for conservation plans

Six Los Angeles City Council members introduced a motion on Tuesday to create a regional wildlife habitat connectivity plan that includes Los Angeles and Ventura counties, noting that “our native wildlife does not respect jurisdictional boundaries.” .

The motion was presented by Councilors Nithya Raman and Monica Rodriguez and Councilors Paul Krekorian, Paul Koretz, Mike Bonin and John Lee.

He noted several local and national efforts to conserve wildlife habitat and address climate change. Along with the city’s draft wildlife ordinance — which aims to promote wildlife habitat and connectivity between the 405 and 101 freeways in the Santa Monica Mountains — the motion noted conservation preservation plans from state and federal “30% by 2030,” Senator Alex Padilla’s public Land Act and Wildlife Connectivity Ordinances of LA and Ventura Counties.
