The Bureau of Land Management California Wildlife Program is focused on ensuring self-sustaining populations and a natural abundance and diversity of wildlife on public lands for the enjoyment and use of present and future generations. The program is responsible for managing habitats for wildlife species that depend on public lands for all or part of their lifecycle. Program activities address habitat maintenance, restoration, and species conservation in cooperation with federal, state, Tribal governments, private landowners, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). BLM-managed public lands are home to thousands of mammals, reptile, avian, fish, and invertebrate species over some of our nation’s most ecologically diverse and essential habitat. The California Wildlife Program works with partners and cooperating agencies/governments to align efforts to manage priority habitats and species, identify and implement strategies that promote building resiliency to climate change and environmental stressors, including drought; wildland fire; unusual weather events; and insects/disease. Priority habitats are identified through the BLM land use planning process, and can include but are not limited to, Areas of Critical Environmental Concerns (ACECs), wildlife management areas, key habitat areas, migration areas, habitat connectivity areas, watchable wildlife areas, roost sites, lambing or fawning areas, riparian and wetlands, etc.
