Overview

Funded Projects

Federal funds are available to Arkansas through State Wildlife Grants to monitor, research and protect the needs of wildlife not addressed by funding available for game species or endangered species. To be eligible for these funds, Arkansas developed a comprehensive strategy to effectively allocate the money.

The strategy was authored by teams of wildlife professionals representing public agencies and private organizations. The Arkansas Wildlife Action Plan was approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on January 17, 2007. The Plan was revised and approved January 2015.

The Arkansas Wildlife Action plan implements the priorities determined by a database of scientific knowledge of wildlife. A total of 377 species of greatest conservation need are addressed in the context of 37 terrestrial habitats and 18 aquatic habitats in 7 ecoregions in Arkansas.
