Revisions to Connecticut's Wildlife Action Plan


In 2005, Connecticut completed its Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy (CWCS), now known as the Connecticut Wildlife Action Plan (WAP), creating a blueprint for the conservation of wildlife over a decade. Connecticut, along with other states across the country, is currently working on revisions to the WAP that will establish both a state and national framework for proactively conserving our fish and wildlife, including their habitats, for the next 10 years.

Help DEEP create a vision for the future of wildlife conservationParticipation by conservation partners, academic institutions, municipalities, and the public is key to making the revised WAP an effective tool for conservting Connecticut's diverse wildlife resources for future generation. Comments may be submitted to the DEEP Wildlife Division via email ( or through the "Get Involved" section of the Wildlife Action Plan webpage.
