Recovery Implementation Program

Washington ground squirrel

The Recovery Implementation Program coordinates with federal, state, Tribal and private partners to restore habitat and recover species listed under the Endangered Species Act throughout Washington.  The Recovery Program funds high priority recovery actions that achieve species recovery, actions that may preclude the need to list candidate species and actions that conserve the ecosystems upon which these species depend.

The Washington Field Office is requesting Recovery and Candidate Conservation proposals to be submitted by February 16, 2021.  Please review WFWO's FY21  Request for Species Recovery Project Proposals for a list of priority species and projects and instructions for proposal development and submission HERE.
