The Colorado Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy is scheduled to be updated every 10 years with the first one beginning in 2005. This update will ensure the future of Alabama's wildlife and the habitat it depends on for survival. The career opportunities available in the field of veterinary science are numerous and varied. Careers in wildlife and habitat conservation play a vital role in state and federal animal regulation. Individuals can make a great impact on the growing effort to save the planet by choosing careers that protect and support endangered species and disappearing habitats. Wildlife must be protected all over the world. Delicate ecosystems depend on the symbiotic relationships of plants, animals, and humankind. Without the careful transfer of pollens, seeds, and even bacteria many endangered areas and animals would disappear from the landscape. It is important that we, as the keepers of the planet, do what we can on an individual basis to care for the plants and animals in our areas. To take things a step further than outside your front door, you might consider becoming a wildlife preservationist. Many of the same animal sciences and biosciences will be involved with this career path as others in veterinary medicine and research areas.

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. A wildlife action plan assesses the wildlife and habitat health, identifies any problems the wildlife and habitat face and describes the actions needed to rectify the problems and conserve the wildlife and habitat in question. Congress has identified eight elements that each wildlife action plan is required to have, which will better aid in identifying the plans of action to take and why. These eight elements are: Information on the Distribution and Abundance of Species of Wildlife; Descriptions of Extent and Conditions of Habitats and Community Types; Descriptions of Problems and Priority Research and Survey Efforts; Descriptions of Conservation Actions; Proposed Plans for Monitoring Species Identified and Their Habitats; Description of Procedures to Review the Plan; Plans for Coordinating the Development, Implementation, Review and Revision of the Plan with Federal, State, Local Agencies and Indian Tribes; and Broad Public Participation. Utah had 196 aquatic and terrestrial wildlife species classified as wildlife species of greatest conservation need (GCN). Of these 196 GCN, 44 are birds, 40 are mollusks, 39 are mammals, 34 are reptiles, 29 are fish and 10 are amphibians.
