Feral Management Plan

The public is invited to comment on the Feral and Invasive Animal Management Plan and Environmental Assessment. 

The Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge (refuge), in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, has prepared a draft Environmental Assessment and Invasive and Feral Animal Management Plan (plan) and is inviting the public to review these documents.

The purpose of the plan is to prevent further introduction and spread of pest species (feral hogs, cats, dog, livestock) on refuge lands, and to reduce/prevent further destruction and degradation of wildlife and habitat. The Plan combines intra-agency efforts and will be implemented by refuge personnel. Similar Feral Animal Management Plans have been successful on other public lands throughout the United States that have comparable management issues.

The prepared documents are available for public review through close of business (4:30pm) Monday, August 15, 2013, and can be downloaded.
