Description

April 9th WRP Natural Resources Committee webinar on State Wildlife Action Plans (SWAP) and related state collaborative efforts in support of species. This webinar will run from 8 -10 am Pacific. 

States have a long-standing role and expertise in wildlife conservation. A myriad of both state and federal laws affects management of trust responsibilities over wildlife resources.  Generally, states have primary authority over wildlife not subject to specific federal jurisdiction.

This webinar will highlight:

  • State and federal roles in managing wildlife resources
  • State Wildlife Action Plan Overview (purpose, required elements and implementation)
  • State Wildlife Agencies’ Collaborative roles with Tribes, Federal agencies and other state agencies and how SWAPS could be used by other agencies
  • How to partner with State Wildlife Agencies
  • How to identify whether a species has a federal, tribal or state lead and why that matters
  • Best practices/Case Studies such as Arizona Game and Fish Department’s efforts of working with key stakeholders in support of the Sonoran Desert tortoise (Gopherus morafkai) and state efforts in support of the Yellow-billed Cuckoo (Coccyzus americanus).
  • WGA efforts to use SWAPs as the blueprint for identifying and focusing regional conservation efforts under their Task Force on Collaborative Conservation.
