AUSTIN -- The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is seeking online public input as the department revises its six-year-old wildlife action plan, a document now called the Texas Conservation Action Plan.

According to a June 3 Texas Parks and Wildlife Department press release, the Texas Conservation Action Plan, formerly the Texas Wildlife Action Plan, is developed to encourage landowners, natural resource professionals, and the public to preserve our natural heritage for future generations. The department urges public and private stakeholders to use the guide in developing conservation initiatives both locally and statewide. The department uses the plan for many grant-distribution programs, including the Landowner Incentive Program, the Horned Lizard License Plate funds, State Wildlife Grants, and the Healthy Habitats program.

An online public survey for the draft will be available on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department website until Friday, July 8. Visitors are encouraged to fill out the survey to help hone state priorities for primarily non-game wildlife conservation. When finalized, the Texas Conservation Action Plan will be reviewed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and go into effect later this year. With a current conservation plan in place, Texas will continue to receive millions of dollars annually in federal state wildlife grants.

Last year, the Healthy Habitats program awarded $225,000 in grants to 15 different schools and nonprofit youth organizations across the state. With the grant, students created service projects that addressed priorities in the Texas Conservation Action Plan.

The Texas Conservation Action Plan draft is available on the website http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/landwater/land/tcap/.
