    Conservation Planning

    Our conservation planning efforts involve translating and disseminating the scientific research and ecological monitoring data into on-the-ground conservation and improved management within the landscape. The Institute aims to influence land management and conservation by participation in agency management and conservation efforts within the region. Conservation planning tools are also an important part of our awareness-building and education effort.

    We work with local governments and other conservation organizations to improve county comprehensive plans through policy and ordinances so as to protect important wildlife and fisheries habitats. We participate in county planning efforts as appropriate.

    A few examples of our role to date in conservation planning in the region include:

    • Participation in the North Magic Valley Local Sage-grouse working group. Convened in 2007, this group meets regularly and is presently developing a Conservation Plan for Sage-grouse in the North Magic Valley region
    • Participation in Idaho Fish and Game workshop to identify priority wildlife habitat areas for implementing the Idaho State Wildlife Action Plan
    • Participation in development of a Conservation Plan for the Pioneers - Craters Region
    • Participation in development of the Blaine County Wildlife Overlay
