Target Species

Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) was initiated in 2012 and there are eight nationally-identified target species. In 2016 a Request for Proposals was circulated to the NRCS State Offices whereby they could work with local partners to identify additional species for state-run WLFW 2.0 partnership efforts. In response to this RFP, 12 additional species and habitat efforts were approved to launch in 2017, and another 4 in 2018. This portal workspace will initially service the eastern, south and mid-western target species (9). The habitat needs of these species are representative of healthy, functioning ecosystems where conservation efforts benefit a much broader suite of species.
