Conservation Strategy for Wildlife Movement and Migration

With the understanding that private lands, particularly working landscapes, are a vital component for wildlife habitat in Montana, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has developed a new strategy for wildlife movement and migration.

The new strategy was developed over the last year in a partnership with conservation organizations, landowners and others in response to growing public interest in conserving habitat for wildlife movement and migration. This focus has heightened even more given expanding human development and a changing climate.

FWP will use the new strategy to further integrate efforts related to wildlife movement and migration into its existing policies and programs. The intent is to better highlight the work FWP staff already do related to wildlife movement and migration, and to strengthen that work where necessary.
