Texas Conservation Action Plan
Each state in the U.S. has completed a Wildlife Action Plan or Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy to improve the stability and recovery of species which are in decline, already listed as threatened or endangered, and/or are representative of the diversity and health of the state's wildlife. To date, these plans have become important guides for natural resource management programs, conservation funding, partnership building, project development, and problem-solving at local and regional levels.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is the steward of the Texas Conservation Action Plan, formerly called the Texas Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy 2005-2010 or Texas Wildlife Action Plan. This revised Texas plan (approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2013) is a series of 11 regionally-specific Ecoregion handbooks, a Statewide/Multi-region handbook, and this Overview document. Collectively, they are now called the Texas Conservation Action Plan.
