Volunteering

Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program

The Partners for Fish and Wildlife (Partners) Program provides technical and financial assistance to private landowners and local partners interested in restoring, enhancing and managing fish and wildlife habitats on private property. The program operates on a voluntary basis, relying on interested landowners to provide opportunities for habitat improvements on their lands. Under a cooperative agreement, landowners agree to maintain the habitat improvement project for at least ten years, but otherwise retain full control of their land.

A private landowner’s passion for conservation of the Amargosa toad and community leadership brought together a wide range of organizations and interests, including those not usually associated with species conservation. These efforts can be directly attributed to the Service’s ‘not warranted’ decision on a petition to list the toad on July 20, 2010, and are an example of how partners working together can make a difference. Learn more
