The North Carolina Wildlife Action Plan is intended to provide a foundation for State and Federal agencies and other conservation partners to think strategically about their individual roles and coordinate prioritizing conservation efforts throughout the state. The current deadline to evaluate and revise the plan is October 2015.
North Carolina’s revision process began with the September 2010 Climate Impacts Workshop held in Raleigh and continued with five regional workshops held during early 2011. You can find more information about these workshops under the “Related Information” menu.
