WLFW Landscapes and Wildlife

In 2021-2022, a multi-state, areawide planning team produced the first biome-scale frameworks for wildlife conservation in the Great Plains grasslands, western sagebrush country, and for the Central and Eastern grasslands and savannas within 25 states in the northern bobwhite range. These frameworks for conservation action capture the science documenting the threats to biomes and the wildlife that are part of them, the conservation actions that NRCS can support to address these threats and benefit producers, and the NRCS goals for implementing these actions over time.

Working Lands for Wildlife Initiatives 2022
Map of FY 2023 NRCS Landscape Conservation Initiatives


Working Lands for Wildlife (WLFW) was initiated in 2012 and there are eight nationally-identified target species. In 2016 a Request for Proposals was circulated to the NRCS State Offices whereby they could work with local partners to identify additional species for state-run WLFW 2.0 partnership efforts. In response to this RFP, 12 additional species and habitat efforts were approved to launch in 2017, and another 4 in 2018.

This portal will initially service the eastern, south and mid-western target species (9). The habitat needs of these species are representative of healthy, functioning ecosystems where conservation efforts benefit a much broader suite of species.
