The New Jersey Wildlife Action Plan update will be prepared by natural resource experts to address the highest priorities of NJ's fish and wildlife resources. A step-down process will be used to narrow the existing plan's focus by establishing and prioritizing focal species and then identifying the greatest threats to those species and habitats. Targeted conservation actions will then be linked to those threats, creating a blueprint for conservation of the state's wildlife.
While many of these actions will be direct on-the-ground activities, priorities for enhancing partnerships and increasing public awareness and involvement are significant components of the plan. It is through lasting partnerships that the Division of Fish and Wildlife will make best use of limited resources in the conservation and management of New Jersey's valued natural resources.
Preparing the update for New Jersey is a demanding but critical task. Conflicting interests and priorities among diverse stakeholders, coupled with the complexity of our natural resources, requires collaboration among and between all interested parties. The Division is committed to leading the development of this plan which will provide a framework to protect the state's diverse wildlife resources.
