Plant Conservation Tips

National Wildlife Federation Christmas cards are a great way to show people you care. Tell the people you know and love hello, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays with a Christmas card from The National Wildlife Federation. Sending Christmas cards is a great way to stay in touch with people that you can't see as often as you wish. You can tell them what you have been up to and they can send you a Christmas card telling you about what they have been doing. The National Wildlife Federation has a wonderful selection of Christmas cards that are high quality and lovely. You can pick out cards with wild animal themes or beautiful country scenes.

North Dakota had 70 aquatic and terrestrial wildlife species classified as wildlife species of greatest conservation need (GCN). Of these 70 GCN, 41 are birds, 7 are amphibians and reptiles, 6 are mammals, 10 are fish and 6 are mussels. Problems or threats to the GCN species populations in North Dakota are commercial and industrial development, landfill construction or operation, dams, road construction, urban development, water diversion, municipal and industrial point source, commercial harvest, conversion of riparian forests, excessive non-commercial harvest or collection, channel maintenance and confined animal operations. Other problems or threats to GCN species are crop production practices, excessive groundwater withdrawal, fire suppression, management of or for certain species, channel alteration, exotic species, parasites, pathogens, recreation, grazing, predation, forestry activities and resource extraction. The North Dakota Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy has addressed these problems or threats to the GCN species population with wildlife conservation actions. These wildlife conservation actions include decreasing the data gap by gathering more information on GCN species, by fire management with controlled burns and with habitat protection by initiating projects to protect existing key habitat or habitat components.
