Working Lands for Wildlife is a new partnership between NRCS and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to use agency technical expertise combined with $33 million in financial assistance from WHIP to combat the decline of seven specific wildlife species whose decline can be reversed and will benefit other species with similar habitat needs.
Through Working Lands for Wildlife, landowners can voluntarily participate in an incentive-based efforts to:
Restore populations of declining wildlife species.
Provide farmers, ranchers, and forest managers with regulatory certainty that conservation investments they make today help sustain their operations over the long term.
Strengthen and sustain rural economies by restoring and protecting the productive capacity of working lands.
