Conservation Strategy

ODFW released the 2016 Oregon Conservation Strategy at

The Strategy is an overarching, science-based plan for voluntary conservation of Oregon’s fish and wildlife and their habitats. The plan gives Oregonians the tools they need to find their own role in conserving these valuable resources.

ODFW thanks its many conservation partners for their help in updating the Strategy.
