We partner with landowners, municipalities, schools, and other organizations to restore habitats on private lands. Established in 1992, the program has provided technical assistance and matching federal funds to more than 90 projects to restore stream banks, uplands, wetlands, and other habitats used by wildlife in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Projects are designed to benefit fish and wildlife while meeting the needs and desires of private landowners.

We Offer Technical Assistance:

  • Field biologists provide input to help design restoration projects.

We Offer Economic Assistance:

  • The program is incentive-based and non-regulatory. Funding is available to restore, improve and protect fish and wildlife habitat on private lands. Environmental education projects are also funded.

Milestone accomplishments of our program include:

  • Restored 621 acres of wetlands
  • Restored 2011 acres of uplands
  • Restored 12 miles of riparian areas
  • Signed 90 agreements
