Army develops pilot program to protect base, woodpeckers


FORT BRAGG, N.C., April 5 - Environmentalists bent on protecting 
endangered species have a new - and formidable - ally: the U.S. Army. 
AS A FEDERAL agency, the Army has long been required to protect flora 
and fauna that are declared endangered. At Fort Bragg, a 167,000-acre 
post adjoining Fayetteville, work to protect and restore the 
red-cockaded woodpecker began at least a decade ago. 

The effort only recently became a joint project of the military and The 
Nature Conservancy, an international environmental group. The 
collaboration is serving as a pilot program for the Army and a model for 
bases across the country. 

And it serves the soldiers as well as the birds: By restricting 
development on the fringes of Fort Bragg, the Army can avoid fights with 
potential neighbors over the noise and disruption of military training.
