Arkansas Wildlife Action Plan
As part of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s State Wildlife Grant (SWG) program, Congress charged each state and territory with developing a state Wildlife Action Plan which provides an essential foundation for the future of wildlife conservation and an opportunity for state, federal agencies and other conservation partners to fit together individual and coordinated roles in conservation efforts across the state. As a leader of this, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is responsible for requesting and administering State Wildlife Grants to support the implementation of the Arkansas Wildlife Action Plan.
