Coastal Program Strategic Plan
In 2006, the Coastal Program developed its first national strategic
plan which included step down plans for each
program. The Gulf of Maine Coastal Program step down plan identified
two focus areas for conservation delivery:
a coastal wetlands, rivers and forest habitats focus area and coastal
islands focus area. Selection criteria included trust species diversity,
intact landscapes/watersheds, partnership
opportunities, threats and capabilities.
Program staff concentrate habitat conservation
activities in these focus areas.
You can find our 2006
Coastal Program Strategic Plan which includes the GOMCP step down
plan at http://www.fws.gov/coastal/strategicPlan.html.
We are currently in the process of revising our 2006 plan. When that plan
is finalized, we will provide more information and links here.
Region 5 Ecological Services Priority Planning Process
We are also working on
a priority planning process with the USFWS Maine
Field Office that
will help both offices identify specific
focal areas for our work and develop action
plans for the next three to five years, while
facilitating opportunities for collaboration.
