The Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program helps landowners restore and enhance wildlife habitat, providing them technical and financial assistance. Partners staff custom-design projects to meet landowners’ needs.
The Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program aims to make it easier for private landowners to conserve wildlife habitat. Winning them over to conservation is important because private landowners manage more than two-thirds of the country’s land.
Partners staff focus efforts on areas of conservation concern, such wetlands and native prairies, and projects to likely benefit federal trust species including migratory birds, endangered, threatened and at-risk species.
Since the program’s start in 1987, some 50,000 landowners have worked with Partners staff to complete 60,000 habitat restoration projects on 6 million acres.
