Strategic Plan for Pollinator Conservation

Monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) by Tom Koerner, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) administers more surface land, approximately 245 million acres (one-tenth of America’s land base), than any federal agency in the United States. In accordance with the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) of 1976, the BLM manages public lands under the principles of multiple use and sustained yield. This “Strategic Plan for Pollinator Conservation” (strategy) is intended to increase pollinator conservation efforts on BLM-managed lands by providing direction for agency commitment of resources for pollinator species and their habitats. This strategy is consistent with and supports FLPMA by directing the sustainable use and protection of ecological and environmental values for future generations (FLPMA, section 102(a)(8); BLM Handbook H-1601-1, “Land Use Planning Handbook”). This strategy also supports the America the Beautiful Initiative and “Department of the Interior Climate Action Plan 2021” to conserve lands and biodiversity.
