Working Lands for Wildlife

Gopher TortoiseNearly two-thirds of all wildlife species federally listed as threatened or endangered live on private lands. The Working Lands for Wildlife partnership between NRCS and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service combats the decline of seven wildlife species whose decline can be reversed and recovery will benefit other species with similar habitat needs. In Florida, threatened species are gopher tortoise and northern bobwhite quail. Agricultural producers who want to help can get technical and financial assistance through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
