Texas A&M University-Kingsville announced Friday a partnership between Enbridge Inc. and King Ranch Inc. for a joint donation that will grant a combined $200,000 that will provide funds to the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute to restore a native monarch butterfly habitat, as well as fund student scholarships with the university’s engineering department and King Ranch Institute for Ranch Management.

TAMUK President Steven Tallant said during Friday’s announcement, held in the Founders Room at Lewis Hall, that he was “deeply, deeply appreciative” of the grants which will benefit the university’s “three signature programs.”
