NRCS to Expand Targeted Conservation Effort for Wildlife on Agricultural Lands

WASHINGTON, March 23, 2018 – From the Hawaiian nene to salamanders and turtles, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is adding several new target species to its premier wildlife conservation effort that helps agricultural producers make voluntary wildlife-friendly improvements on working lands. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is adding five new projects to Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW), the agency’s targeted, science-based effort to help producers restore and protect habitat for declining species on farms, ranches and working forests.

“Agriculture and wildlife both thrive together through landscape conservation,” said NRCS Acting Chief Leonard Jordan, “Through a locally led process, Working Lands for Wildlife has delivered many unprecedented successes over the years and we’re proud of our collective past achievements and look forward to continuing our work with America’s producers.”
