State Agencies

State agencies are engaged in launching the Appalachian LCC and participating in leadership roles. State agencies are one of the wealthiest entities for supplying technical skills for conservation delivery.  In addition to thousands of acres of state-managed lands, hundreds of biologists with diverse expertise are located throughout the Appalachian LCC.  States are working diligently on finalizing implementation plans to complement their State Wildlife Action Plans.  These plans will guide states and partners to increase efficiency by directing more focus to species of greatest conservation concern and to specific conservation actions articulated in these planning documents.  Congress required the states to develop plans that included descriptions of problems which may adversely affect species, priority research and survey efforts, descriptions of proposed conservation actions, and adaptive responses to new information or changing conditions.  State biologists are also integral to most of the public-private partnerships.
