Defense Department Becomes a Wildlife Protector

I want to share this article with each of you while pointing out that SERPPAS is another important way by which the REPI program works with others to protect our military mission. In SERPPAS, OSD and the Military Services protect DoD activities by working with our state and federal partners to conserve natural resources, support agriculture and forestry by supporting those who work the land, and by promoting healthy local economies with development that is compatible with military activities.
