Threatened & Endangered Species

Farmers, ranchers and forest landowners are making voluntary improvements to their land, helping save habitats for at-risk, threatened and endangered species.

Owners and managers of working lands coordinate with NRCS through the agency’s Working Lands for Wildlife partnership with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service to create and enhance wildlife habitat for many different species, including those facing population troubles. This work helps reverse population declines of seven wildlife species targeted in the partnership as well as provides benefits to other wildlife.

Two of the endangered species in Mississippi are the Gopher Tortoise and the Black Pine Snake.
