Monarch butterfly and other pollinators are in trouble. Monarch butterfly habitat— including milkweed host plants and nectar food sources—has declined drastically throughout most of the United States. Observed overwinter population levels have also exhibited a long-term downward trend, suggesting a strong relationship between habitat loss and monarch population declines. Preliminary research results from a U.S. Geological Survey led effort indicate that we need a comprehensive conservation strategy that includes all land types in order to stabilize monarch populations at levels necessary to adequately minimize extinction risk—urban areas will likely play a critical role.

This is a grant to support the continuation of the Fishes of Texas Program. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and their recipient, University of Texas at Austin, manage the Fishes of Texas program and the Native Fish Conservation Network (NFCN). This funding will support staff (i.e., research associate) operations that are required for continued stewardship of these important resources that are utilized by state and federal agencies as well as private and academic institutions. This effort has five main Objectives:For Objective 1, the research associate will compile and collate all research, monitoring, and restoration projects conducted within the 20 Texas Native Fish Conservation Areas (NFCAs) since the...

This project will refine the hierarchical prioritization within and across the Texas Native Fish Conservation Areas (NFCAs) for integration into the comprehensive revisions of the Texas Conservation Action Plan in 2025. Research products (SDMs and hierarchical prioritization of NFCAs) will guide efforts that result in long-term focus for management and make the most efficient use of limited conservation resources for maintaining or improving conditions for Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) fishes. Research products can subsequently be used to support efforts such as: updating Species Status Assessments used to inform revisions of the SGCN and State Threatened and Endangered species lists, refining the...

Sum of all watershed-based (HU-8) implementation interests or priorities identified as of June 2016 within the Mississippi River Basin. These watersheds represent areas identified as a focus for investment to improve either water quality or aquatic habitat. Data was compiled from state, federal, regional, and non-governmental organizations including, but not limited to USDA-NRCS, USEPA, USFWS, Fish Habitat Partnerships, Gulf Hypoxia Task Force, and State Nutrient Reduction Strategies. Some HUC-12 priority watersheds were included as well, but coded to the HUC-8 level. Data from the Mississippi River Basin Initiative, National Water Quality Initiative and State Nutrient Reduction Strategies were updated in 2016.

Sum of all conservation focus areas (CFA) for a particular area (UPDATED TO INCLUDE CONSERVATION PRIORITIES DELINEATED IN LATEST STATE WILDLIFE ACTION PLANS (ca. 2015/2016)). These focus areas include both those delineated at the state scale as well as regionally. States focus areas are included for all states in the Mississippi River Basin that have delineated focus/opportunity areas. States that are not included either have not delineated focus areas or were in the process of developing them at the time of data collection. States where CFA are pending: Texas and Wyoming. States where CFA have not been identified: Georgia; Maryland; Michigan; New Mexico; New York; and Oklahoma. Regional focus area include those...

Conservation estate and conservation priority areas identified by states, joint ventures, NGO’s, etc. within the greater Mississippi River Basin. NOTE: While the data layers “Sum - Conservation Focus Areas (2016)” and “Sum - Conservation and Watershed Interests (2016)” include conservation opportunity areas delineated by Louisiana DWF, this map service does not include that layer separately due to data sharing restrictions.
