Tools for Partners and Landowners

tools for partners and landowners include:

Conservation Partnership Program Invasive Species Program
Coastal Conservation Program Environmental Contaminants Program

Our nation’s private landowners are critical to the success of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s mission to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats. The Service has many tools and programs for conservation of fish, wildlife and plants on private lands.

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.

The Conservation Partnerships Program is a collection of voluntary habitat restoration programs with the goal of restoring native Pacific Island ecosystems through collaborative projects. This program seeks to implement large-scale conservation efforts for the benefit of native ecosystems by working cooperatively with private landowners, conservation organizations, community groups, and other government agencies.

The Coastal Conservation Program's goal is to achieve conservation of significant aquatic, estuarine, and marine resources in the Pacific Islands.

The Pacific Islands Fish and Wildlife Office’s Invasive Species Program was formally established in 2002 to coordinate the prevention of the establishment of introduced invasive species that negatively affect or have the potential to affect the USFWS trust resources and their habitats within the Pacific Ecoregion.

Environmental Contaminants Program reviews environmental documents, legislation, regulations, and permits and licenses with pollution potential to ensure that harmful effects on fish, wildlife, and plants are avoided or minimized.
