Comprehensive Conservation Planning Updates

What is a CCP?
A comprehensive conservation plan (CCP) is like a recipe for managing a wildlife refuge. These plans provide a 15-year guide, using the best available scientific knowledge, to help managers achieve the purposes for which each refuge was established, and to contribute to the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System. The National Wildlife Refuge System mprovement Act of 1997 defined the mission for the Refuge System and requires refuges to have a CCP in place by 2012. The Act provides the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) with guidance for managing refuges in a way that ensures the long-term conservation of fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats. CCP outline goals, objectives and management strategies for a refuge to achieve during the 15-year life of a CCP.
