Comprehensive Conservation Planning

The purpose of a CCP is to specify a management direction for the Refuge for the next 15 years. The goals, objectives, and strategies for improving Refuge conditions—including the types of habitat we will provide, partnership opportunities, and management actions needed to achieve desired conditions – are described in the CCP. The Service’s preferred alternative for managing the Refuge and its effects on the human environment, are described in the CCP as well.


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is currently in the processes of revising the Comprehensive Conservation Plan for Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge. The original plan was completed in 1994 and has become outdated. New information, better science, emerging management issues, and changing conservation priorities need to be considered and incorporated into the future for the Refuge.
