Do You Know JOE?
JOE has certified wildlife biologists who assist with the supervision
of compliance, monitoring and management.
JOE has teamed with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Forest Service
to increase the population of red-cockaded woodpeckers in its Wetappo Creek Conservation
Area. As a result of JOE's voluntary efforts, the Wetappo Creek woodpecker went
from a declining population of four males in 2001 to approximately 30 woodpeckers
today. JOE will soon begin to donate birds from Wetappo Creek to other areas of
the Southeastern United States.
