Quail populations, particularly Northern bobwhite, have been declining for years, and the major factor is habitat loss. In Texas, 90% of the state is privately owned, so landowners are the key to restoring quail populations through habitat restoration and management. The Wildlife Habitat Federation serves as a model that can be replicated around the state to get landowners to work together to restore quail. Texas A&M AgriLife Extension joins other groups, such as Texas Parks and Wildlife, in educating landowners on the best habitat management techniques. Visit wildlife.tamu.edu

In 1990, current owners Berdon and Rolanette Lawrence began their loving relationship with this landscape, named the Laborcitas Creek Ranch. The ranch includes 16,000 acres of mostly classic brush country but also 40 acres of valuable wetlands. Bucking the trends of fragmentation and non-native invasive grasses, the Laborcitas Creek Ranch is adding acreage and diligently restoring native habitat to benefit diverse wildlife, from game animals to waterfowl and more. Given in honor of renowned conservationist Aldo Leopold, the prestigious award is conferred each year by Sand County Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to private land conservation, in partnership with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Lone Star Land Steward Awards program. Since the program’s inception 23 years ago, over 200 landowners have been honored for conserving more than 3 million acres of fish and wildlife habitat. In Texas, the Leopold Conservation Award Program is sponsored by the Lee and Ramona Bass Foundation, DuPont Pioneer and The Mosaic Company.

This ranch in Clay County has been involved in active cattle operations since the 1930s, but underwent major changes after Deborah Clark and Emry Birdwell took ownership 13 years ago. Using high intensity/low duration grazing, they are able to maximize beef production and improve quail and other wildlife habitat at the same time. The grazing management practices are closely tied to the wildlife resource management goals. This is a deliberate holistic context evidenced at the ranch.

Recognizing that habitat degradation didn’t occur overnight, and neither does restoration, Justin and Tamara Trail have taken a step-by-step approach to managing their Shackelford County ranch. One of the fundamental objectives for the Trail Ranch is to manage the land and the plant community to benefit from moisture when it occurs and to sustain a healthy habitat even during drought conditions. They have made strides in improving the land for wildlife, particularly bobwhite quail, turkey and deer through brush control, native plant restoration and other best management practices.

Click the following link to support TWRC: https://www.gofundme.com/TWRCWildlifeCenter 10801 Hammerly Blvd, Houston, TX 77043 (713) 468-8972 https://www.twrcwildlifecenter.org/ Services provided by TWRC Wildlife Center include an emergency room for injured, ill, and orphaned wildlife, as well as a help-line; both the emergency room and the help-line operate 7 days a week. A veterinarian is on staff to assist with training and emergencies. Our competent and experienced volunteers and staff facilitate initial triage, rehabilitation, release, and education. TWRC cares for both native and non-native Texas wildlife found in and around the Houston area, with a specialty in small mammals, migratory songbirds, small raptors and reptiles. Our goal is to rehabilitate with the intent to release back into the wild. If this goal can’t be achieved because the animal is beyond care or has sustained injuries preventing its release, TWRC will humanely end its suffering. There are occasions when placement can be found for some non-releasable wild animals, but these opportunities are very limited and require special government permits to ensure the animal will receive the best long-term care. When TWRC can’t place or accept wildlife for rehabilitation, rescuers receive referrals to other wildlife organizations who can offer the best care for those animals. TWRC provides animal care in two ways: (1) in-home by permitted rehabilitators who specialize in one or more species and (2) onsite programs such as the 14-year old Baby Bird Program, the Baby Squirrel Program, and the newly established Opossum and Pals Program. In-home rehabilitation is usually reserved for neonates, critical care, and species that need months of care before they can be released. The onsite programs offer a way for the community to become actively involved in the rehabilitation of wildlife under the guidance of experienced rehabilitators. https://www.twrcwildlifecenter.org/

In New Orleans the wardens maneuvered their boats among submerged skyscrapers and subdivisions to rescue nearly 5,000 people from the lingering floodwaters. Less than a month later, game wardens fanned out across East Texas to aid in the disaster relief in the wake of Hurricane Rita.

Kelly Simon discusses Wildscapes in Texas: We may enjoy watching native Texas birds, butterflies, and other wildlife more than ever before, but when we plant exotic grasses, flowers, and trees in our landscapes, we prevent our native wildlife from getting the things they need to survive. This informative webinar will show you what beneficial native wildlife need to survive and how you can provide it at your home, work, school, or anywhere that you have a little control over the environment. We'll focus on the needs of songbirds and pollinators, but the concepts you learn will be applicable to any group of wildlife.

Pollinating insects are incredibly important for the ecological and economic well-being of Texas. The bulk of animal-mediated pollination is carried out by bees, but numerous threats have adversely impacted populations of both native and non-native bee species. However, management practices based on an understanding of basic bee biology can have a positive impact on native-bee populations in Texas. Native Texas bee species, their habitat, and ecological requirements are briefly introduced. General land management practices that benefit native-pollinators are discussed, emphasizing activities that augment food and nesting resources.
