Comprehensive Conservation Planning

Stuver Lake 501x184The purpose of a CCP is to specify a management direction for the Refuge for the next 15 years. The goals, objectives, and strategies for improving Refuge conditions—including the types of habitat we will provide, partnership opportunities, and management actions needed to achieve desired conditions – are described in the CCP. The Service’s preferred alternative for managing the Refuge and its effects on the human environment, are described in the CCP as well.

The Refuge System is managed by the Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), an agency within the U.S. Department of the Interior. The Service is the primary Federal entity responsible for conserving and enhancing the Nation’s fish and wildlife populations and their habitats. Although the Service shares this responsibility with other Federal, State, tribal, local, and private entities, the Service has specific trust resource responsibilities for migratory birds, threatened and endangered species, certain anadromous fish, certain marine mammals, coral reef ecosystems, wetlands, and other special aquatic habitats. The Service also has similar trust responsibilities for the lands and waters it administers to support the conservation and enhancement of all fish and wildlife and their associated habitats.


 In September 2008, we completed a revised Comprehensive Conservation Plan for the Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge. This plan provides broad policy guidance and management direction for the Tetlin Refuge for the next 15 years, to ensure that management actions and uses are compatible with Refuge purposes, the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, and comply with other legal mandates. The plan also provides a description of the Refuge's resources and defines long-term management goals and objectives toward which refuge management activities are directed.
