Surrogate Species in Strategic Habitat Conservation (SHC)

Fish, wildlife, and plants and the habitats they depend on, are dynamic; responding to ecological events and processes occurring at multiple scales, ranging from more local to global. Therefore, the better we understand how species respond to changes at these various scales, the better we can conserve landscapes capable of supporting self-sustaining populations now and in the future. SHC is the adaptive framework that we will use as routine practice within the agency to fulfill our mission and achieve our vision.
