Begin Here: Review Guidance
For nearly three years, Game Commission and Fish & Boat Commission staff, with assistance from numerous conservation partners, have revised the 2005 Pennsylvania Wildlife Action Plan; an important blueprint for conservation action. Required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to keep the Plans current and for continued receipt of State & Tribal Wildlife Grants Program funding, each state must revise its State Wildlife Action Plan no less than every 10 years.
This draft 2015 Pennsylvania Wildlife Action Plan updates the species of greatest conservation need, extent and condition of associated habitat, threats to species and habitats, conservation actions to address threats, monitoring to gauge implementation progress, and coordination with conservation partners and public involvement. The revised Plan is due to the USFWS by September 30, 2015.
