Wildlife Jobs in Florida

Throughout the nation there is an important struggle taking place. This struggle is the fight to save wildlife and the habitat they depend on for survival. There are many partners in this struggle, including the United States Fish and Wildlife Services, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and state wildlife agencies. These entities have come together to practice wildlife conservation by developing a wildlife action plan or the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy for each state. Funds are available for wildlife conservation and restoration of wildlife populations throughout America for each individual state. However, before any state can receive this funding they must have developed a "wildlife action plan" better known as the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy, by October 1, 2005.

Monitoring the CWCS in Illinois will begin with the employment of existing inventories and surveys, which includes any monitoring done by conservation partners. Monitoring will continue with surveys, remote sensing, satellite imagery, disease and movement monitoring, breeding site survey sampling, DNA and net sampling, herpetological web site, predictive modeling, ground truthing and taxonomic affinities an reclassification. Population, habitat and project-level monitoring are also included in the Illinois CWCS as well as distribution information, length frequency distributions; community-level monitoring and replication. These performance measures provide information that pertains to conservation actions and provide for revisions to these actions if needed. The conservation action and proposed plans for GCN species and habitat monitoring occurs with help from several partners. These partners include but are not limited to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the United States Geological Survey, the Illinois Natural History Survey, the Illinois State Water Survey, the Illinois Geological Survey, the Illinois State Museum, the Illinois Academy of Sciences, the Illinois Audubon Society, Illinois universities and The Nature Conservancy. Other partners included are Ducks Unlimited, the National Turkey Federation, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, The American Fisheries Society, The Wildlife Society an the Great Lakes Fishery Commission. The Illinois Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy is scheduled for reviews and revision every 10 years. The purpose of this is for this reviewing the conservation status of the GCN species and to revise the list if necessary, to determine if modification is necessary. Twenty-four months will need to be scheduled to allow for reviewing and revising of the Illinois Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy. Throughout the nation there is an important struggle taking place.
