Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program in Florida

The Southeast Region Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program provides technical and financial assistance to private landowners interested in improving habitat for migratory birds, endangered, threatened and at-risk species while maintaining the their primary land management goals. This is a voluntary program in which landowners continue to manage their land for their objectives as well as for wildlife, which most of the time go-hand-in-hand.

Our locally-based field biologists provide personalized attention and work one-on-one with private landowners to: - Plan, implement, and monitor their projects, - Identify other partners to participate in projects, - Identify sources of funding, and - Provide guidance through the permitting process, as necessary.
