It is estimated that 73% of our Nation's land is privately owned and that the majority of our fish and wildlife resources occur on those lands. Consequently, the conservation lands held by Federal and state agencies and other conservation groups cannot completely provide for fish and wildlife needs. The Partners for Fish and Wildlife program provides technical and financial assistance to private and Tribal landowners interested in restoring, enhancing and managing fish and wildlife habitats on their land. The program operates on a voluntary basis, relying on willing landowners interested in improving habitat on their land.
