Bureau of Land Management: Wildlife Resource Management

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Headquarters National Wildlife Program helps ensure self-sustaining populations and a natural abundance and diversity of wildlife on public lands for the enjoyment and use of present and future generations. The program is responsible for maintaining, restoring, and conserving species and their habitats in cooperation with State and local governments, Tribal governments, Federal and State agencies, private landowners, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). BLM-managed public lands are home to thousands of mammals, reptiles, avian, amphibian, and invertebrate species over some of our nation’s most ecologically diverse and essential habitat. The BLM Headquarters National Wildlife Program works with partners and cooperating agencies/governments to protect biodiversity; identify, conserve, and restore priority habitats (those that are locally at risk, important to local or regional communities, and/or contribute to national conservation for species or groups of species); and promote resiliency to climate change and environmental stressors, including drought, wildland fire, unusual weather events, and insects/disease.
