Habitats of Special Concern


In Nebraska, the Partners Program focuses in ecosystems or watersheds where our efforts will accomplish the greatest benefit. Three major geographic areas located in Nebraska are recognized as being of international importance to wildlife. Potential habitat restoration projects located within these geographic areas are considered to be a high priority for the Partners Program.

Nebraska’s Major Geographic Focus Areas

Rainwater Basins
Central Platte River
Sandhills

In addition to the three major geographic focus areas, the Partners Program also recognizes the importance of other fish and wildlife resources located throughout Nebraska. Other important habitat areas of concern include the Missouri, North Platte, Niobrara, Loup, and Republican Rivers, eastern saline wetlands, Todd Valley wetlands, and the southwest high plains playas. These areas contain important habitats for migrating, wintering, and breeding fish and wildlife.
