New Jersey Wildlife Action Plan Comment Form - Objective

The Objective of New Jersey's Revision: To identify and address the highest priorities of NJ's fish and wildlife resources.

The existing plan's focus will be narrowed by establishing and prioritizing focal species, identifying the areas that provide good conservation opportunities and then target the greatest threats to those species and habitats. Implementable conservation actions will then be linked to those threats, creating a blueprint for conservation of NJ's wildlife.

We know there are many potential threats to our wildlife and that many of New Jersey's wildlife species are at risk. The vision of New Jersey's Wildlife Action Plan is simple: provide a guidance document to help recover species already on the list and to keep species of the list.

This is a huge undertaking which is why the Division of Fish and Wildlife has committed to identify a manageable number of species to focus our attention on. It is only through a concerted and cooperative effort that we can achieve success especially in this time of limited resources. The Division recognizes that narrowing our focus will be difficult. However, we strongly believe that it is necessary and our work on a selected species will indirectly benefit others.

The beauty of the WAP is that is can be updated during its 10 year lifetime so we can truly implement adaptive management - change what is not working, celebrate our successes and move on to the next set of species that our attention. By focusing our attention and actions we can make a difference.
