Wildlife Diversity Project

The Wildlife Health Center, in partnership with the California Department of Fish and Game, developed the California Wildlife Action Plan, California Wildlife: Conservation Challenges. The Wildlife Action Plan was submitted by the Department of Fish and Game to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on September 15, 2006 for final review and was accepted by USFWS in early 2007. 

The Wildlife Action Plan is directed at answering three primary questions:

  • What are the species and habitats of greatest conservation need?
  • What are the major stressors or problems affecting California’s native wildlife and habitats?
  • What are the actions needed to restore and conserve California’s wildlife, thereby reducing the likelihood that more species will approach the condition of threatened or endangered?
  • The California Wildlife Action Plan is available here. (http://www.dfg.ca.gov/SWAP/2005/index.html)
