The Arizona Game and Fish Department created a video describing the recently negotiated mitigation package for anticipated impacts to the Willcox Playa Wildlife Area from the Southline Transmission Project.

The BLM also played a key role, and the agency’s work to modernize its approach to mitigation for development on public lands has helped facilitate these kinds of outcomes.
