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. Funds are available for conserving and restoring wildlife populations throughout America for each individual state.

Monitoring the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy in Utah 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 Utah 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 Partners in Flight, The Nature Conservancy, the United States Department of Agriculture, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the United States Forest Service and the United States Geological Service. Other partners are NatureServe, South Dakota government entities, South Dakota Indian Tribes, South Dakota universities, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, Ducks Unlimited and Pheasant Forever. The South Dakota Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy will have an ongoing informal evaluation that focuses on needs and strategies. An extensive formal review is scheduled to occur every 10 years. These reviews and revisions are necessary for wildlife conservation as well as protection for key habitats in South Dakota. The Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center (SWCC) is sort of like The Island of Misfit Toys from Rudolph - they provide home, sanctuary and love for creatures that don't quite fit anyplace else and that have no place else to go.
