Posted October 30, 2014 By NewsEngine

DOVER – Over the next year, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife and its conservation partners will work with wildlife experts and other key stakeholders throughout the state and region to develop the 2015 Delaware Wildlife Action Plan, a comprehensive plan to conserve wildlife and natural places. Investing in and implementing the plan will help conserve wildlife and protect their habitat for the benefit of current and future generations.

The Wildlife Action Plan will assess Delaware’s wildlife and natural landscape, identify the challenges they face, and outline actions needed for conserving them over the long term. Wildlife status is often an early indicator of environmental degradation that can affect humans, so proactive conservation can benefit both wildlife and people.
