Vector Control Definitions

Categories of Sensitive Areas

Wildlife Areas and Refuges include ODFW-owned or managed Wildlife Areas and small dispersed properties. ODFW also  recognizes federal wildlife areas and refuges as sensitive areas, but does not recommend treatment protocols on these lands. The lands are regulated through the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and VCDs and Counties should coordinate with USFWS staff on current protocols.

Wetlands of Concern are those identified with high conservation value scores, as determined by the Wetland Restoration Planning Tool developed by The Wetlands Conservancy and the Institute for Natural Resources. ODFW chose a subset of wetlands mapped in the Wetland Explorer with a conservation significance of ‚Č•70, as well as those identified by local fish and wildlife biologists as being of local importance.

Unique, rare, or vulnerable habitats are significant habitat areas that are of local importance for their individual qualities or provide protection for a susceptible life history stage of fish or wildlife. These sites will be identified to the extent possible based on the professional judgment and knowledge of local fish and wildlife biologists and updated on an annual basis.
