Wildlife Group Proposes $10,000 Reward For Ivory-Billed Evidence
Posted: 6/21/2006 3:09:32 PM

Arkansas wildlife officials hope the offer of a ten-thousand-dollar reward will help prove that the once-extinct ivory-billed woodpecker is living in the bayous of eastern Arkansas.

Officials from The Nature Conservancy and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission have announced a proposal that would give ten-thousand dollars to anyone who provides information that leads biologists to an ivory-billed woodpecker's nest, roost cavity or feeding site.

The Nature Conservancy received a ten-thousand-dollar anonymous donation for the reward.

Biologists will only pursue reports that include a photograph, sound recording or other substantive evidence, Mueller said.

The woodpecker was first spotted in the Cache River Wildlife Management Area in 2004 -- 60 years after it had last been seen.
