Fish & Wildlife
The 2008 Farm Bill conservation programs can help landowners and producers improve and sustain fish and wildlife habitat. Financial and technical assistance from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) helps landowners and producers plan and implement conservation practices to restore habitat on uplands, wetlands, and waterways.
The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), the Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP), the Healthy Forests Reserve Program (HFRP), and the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) are the primary programs providing financial and technical assistance to help producers and landowners plan and implement conservation practices to conserve biodiversity and restore and maintain fish and wildlife habitat, including habitat for pollinators and rare and declining species.
High-priority conservation practices to address fish and wildlife resource concerns include:
Wetland restoration, enhancement, or creation;
Upland and wetland wildlife habitat management;
Restoration and management of rare and declining habitats;
Early successional habitat development and management;
Riparian forest buffer; and
Stream habitat improvement and management.
