Other partners are the Bureau of Land Management, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Utah Department of Natural Resources, Audubon Utah, Sportsmen for Wildlife, the Utah Farm Bureau as well as local government and Utah citizens. The Utah 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 Utah. 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. 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.

Some nesting boxes (birdhouses) are a cute garden ornament. If birdhouses are spaced far enough apart and food is plentiful, you may see more than one nesting pair. The way you maintain your lawn and garden can have an effect on the local wildlife, your health, and the health of your neighbours. We hire a lawn service that uses non-toxic organic pesticides, and I garden organically without chemical fertilisers or pesticides. I don't have a compost bin, but we use all of our fall leaves as mulch for the gardens\ and put none on the curb. When I have vegetable peelings such as corn husks, I use them as mulch in an unobtrusive spot in the garden. We leave our grass clippings on the lawn or use them as garden mulch. The oldest existing zoo, according to the Wikipedia, is the Vienna Zoo in Austria which was founded in 1753. Yet as early as 3,000 years ago, the Chinese were known to already have at least one zoo. And in ancient Egypt, baboons and lions were kept and cared for inside temples. Indeed zoos have been in existence for centuries and they have played a vital role in the preservation and protection of wildlife by serving as refuge for threatened species.
