The Pacific Northwest Regional Office of the U.S. Forest Service and Oregon/Washington State Office of the Bureau of Land Management recently established an interagency program for the conservation and management of rare species. This new interagency collaboration will focus on regional-level approaches for species that meet agency criteria for inclusion on sensitive and special status lists. This includes those species that are not federally listed as Threatened or Endangered, or Proposed for federally listing. Coordination will include:

  • identifying high-priority species and habitats
  • developing conservation assessments and strategies
  • conducting range-wide inventories
  • managing data
  • working with key partners in State and Federal Agencies, research, universities, and non-government organizations
  • making information available to field staff and the public on this interagency website more>>
