Changing Our Approach to be More Effective    
Leveraging Partners and Resources

The threats facing wildlife and their habitats are unprecedented. As a Region we have prioritized our work by leveraging partners and resources to achieve the greatest conservation gains. Emphasis Areas is a new way of doing business that will bring the largest return on our conservation investment. We are leveraging our people and resources to achieve conservation objectives while ensuring tax dollars are invested wisely. Recognizing we cannot do more with less, we are refining and refocusing on species, landscapes and issues that matter most under the law and by the needs of our partners.
