Funding - Habitat Restoration Activities
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Washington Fish and Wildlife Office (WFWO) is seeking information on current and future proposed fish and wildlife habitat restoration, education, and assessment projects in the state of Washington. We distribute a “Habitat Restoration Partnering Opportunities” document each year to inform as many people as possible about habitat restoration partnering opportunities. This document highlights opportunities to work with local offices of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore habitats and benefit the Nation’s fish and wildlife resources as well as facilitate community education and important habitat and species assessments. Technical assistance is provided to all funded projects. If you would like to work with us to develop a project, please read the Habitat Restoration Partnering Opportunities document. Then contact the appropriate biologist and fill out the Project Summary Form. Please return the summary form to us by the deadline noted in the information. Forms can be emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Projects may consist of restoration, recovery, assessment, education, or research. Priority will, however, be placed on “on-the-ground” projects that restore or enhance fish and wildlife and/or their habitats, with emphasis placed on well-planned projects benefiting federally listed/candidate species and their habitats or improving listed species numbers. Additional emphasis will be placed on projects that work toward a published species recovery goal.
