Our mission is to achieve voluntary habitat conservation by providing technical and financial assistance, in collaboration with partners, for the benefit of Federal trust species.
The Coastal Program is a voluntary, partnership-based, habitat conservation program located in 24 priority coastal areas along the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Gulf of Mexico, Great Lakes, and in the Caribbean. Within these areas, our conservation efforts are guided by a national strategic plan that integrates Service priorities with the shared conservation goals of conservation partners and stakeholders.
How do we select conservatio projects?
Field staff work directly with partners to implement conservation projects that support the following goals:
- Creating coastal ecosystems that are resilient and adaptive to climate change impacts.
- Using science-based conservation design at a landscape scale that supports habitat connectivity and ecological integrity.
- Benefitting the conservation and recovery of federal trust species and other priority species.
- Building conservation partnerships that leverage resources and promote community stewardship of fish and wildlife resources.
Who can participate?
We partner with other Federal programs (including Service programs), State agencies, Tribal and local governments, non-governmental organizations, businesses, industry, land trusts and non-profit groups, and private landowners.
