Tools for Private Landowners, Non-Federal Landowners, States and Tribes
It is estimated that two-thirds of our nation's lands are privately owned. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recognizes that the key to ensuring healthy fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats rests in the hands of private landowners. Learn more about the Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program.
We offer a handful of services to support plant, fish, and wildlife conservation in Washington State - especially federal threatened or endangered species. Different services are tailored to different groups and situations, so if you want to proactively support imperiled species conservation on your property or if you wonder how federally-protected plants and animals may factor into your situation, explore the services we offer.
