Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program in New Mexico

The Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program is a voluntary partnership program that provides technical and financial assistance to non-Federal landowners to improve fish and wildlife habitats for Federal trust species (e.g., threatened, endangered, and candidate species, migratory birds, and other declining species). With more than half of New Mexico in private ownership, there are ample opportunities for habitat restoration on private land.

In New Mexico, private landowners generally provide 25 percent or more of the cost-share funding and/or in-kind services (labor, maintenance, and materials). One-to-one cost share often is achieved by partnering with a host of nationally based and local partners with wildlife habitat funding programs and technical expertise. We help bring landowners and other partners together on restoration projects to benefit from their expertise.
