State wildlife plans, mandated by Congress, examine the health and
status of wildlife and prescribe actions to conserve wildlife and their
habitats. Nevada's wildlife action plan provides a strategic framework and an information resources to help conserve Nevada's terrestrial and aquatic wildlife and the lands and waters on which they depend for survival.
Nevada is uniquely challenged in developing effective wildlife conservation programs in part because of its arid climate, geography and relative scarcity of water resources, which has created a unique endemic biota easily subject to threats and stressors. Throughout Nevada, water is a scarce and valuable resource essential for both human needs and maintenance of wildlife and their habitats. Consequently, the alteration of hydrologic resources is a significant source of stress to wildlife resources. Nevada is also one of the fastest growing states in the nation, with human population creating a need for additional development into open space, causing habitat loss. Invasive, exotic and feral species are one of the most critical problems facing both terrestrial and aquatic species and habitats in Nevada.
