The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) recently announced federal approval of Connecticut’s revised Wildlife Action Plan (WAP)
The approval of the WAP by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service builds on the knowledge gained over the last 10 years through implementation of the first Plan and establishes a framework for collaborative conservation efforts by many partners at local, statewide, and landscape scales.
Approval of the plan also allows Connecticut to remain eligible to receive federal funding through the State Wildlife Grants Program for wildlife management and conservation projects.
Since 2001, Connecticut has received more than $8.5 million in federal funds under the State Wildlife Grants program.
