DE Wildlife Action Plan2015 Delaware Wildlife Action Plan

Funds appropriated by Congress through the State Wildlife Grants program require states to demonstrate comprehensive wildlife conservation needs. "Comprehensive" includes all species and all habitats. Delaware's Division of Fish & Wildlife is actively involved in this process and has created a Delaware Wildlife Action Plan to coordinate wildlife conservation practices in the 21st century.


2015 Delaware Wildlife Action Plan Review and Revision

Following a nearly three-year process, DNREC's Division of Fish & Wildlife has formally received approval of the 2015 Delaware Wildlife Action Plan from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Regional Review Team. The Delaware Wildlife Action Plan (DEWAP) is critical to helping Delaware fulfill its responsibility to conserve its abundant fish and wildlife and natural habitats for future generations. The federal State Wildlife Grants (SWG) program assists state fish and wildlife agencies with conservation of all wildlife species and the habitats they rely on. By Congressional SWG requirements, each state and territory must revise this comprehensive document every 10 years to remain eligible for these funds. Bald eagles look for large trees in upland forests for nesting (eagle photo-USFWS).
