Accomplishments

In 2006 the US Fish & Wildlife Service's Coastal Program developed a Strategic Plan for conserving our Nation's coastal resources. Five major goals were identified as core components of the Coastal Program:

1) Conserve habitat for the benefit of priority fish and wildlife species.
2) Broaden and strengthen partnerships
3) Improve information sharing and communication
4) Enhance our workforce
5) Increase accountability

As part of this process, each office identified Focus Areas and five year goals for habitat protection and restoration within those Focus Areas. The table below tracks our office in reaching the goals in our Focus Areas.
