North Carolina’s Wildlife Action Plan Revision Process

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.

Help Us Now:  Help us incorporate strategies and recommendations for addressing impacts to fish and wildlife species, including climate change.

  • Review draft versions of natural community descriptions that will be included in the 2015 Wildlife Action Plan.  These descriptions provide an evaluation and comparison of anticipated impacts to habitats and wildlife from several types of threats, including climate change, development, land use changes and other sources. Submit your comments or recommendations for measures to address these impacts, including conservation and land management activities. A link is provided within each community description to submit your comments or contact Cindy Carr by email to
  • Review draft lists of priority species, including Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) and species for which there are knowledge gaps and management concerns and needs.  Submit your comments or recommendations for conservation and management activities related to these species. A link is provided within each list of species to submit your comments or contact Cindy Carr by email to


Help Us Later:  Participate in future opportunities to review and comment on a variety of other topics.
