Conservation Board for the acquisition, development, rehabilitation,
restoration, and protection of real property benefiting fish and
wildlife, for the acquisition, restoration, or protection of habitat
that promotes recovery of threatened, endangered, or fully protected
species, maintains the genetic integrity of wildlife populations, and
serves as corridors linking otherwise separate habitat to prevent
habitat fragmentation, and for grants and related state
administrative costs pursuant to the Wildlife Conservation Law of
1947 (Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 1300) of Division 2 of the
