'Wildlife' includes the National Wildlife Program and the National Wildlife Ecology Unit.

The National Wildlife Program assists field biologists in attaining the Chief's wildlife priorities and manage wildlife habitat resources from a healthy ecosystem perspective.

Program 'Initiatives' include "Get Wild!", "Making Tracks" and "Elk Country". See the complete listing on the right under Get wild!. 'Initiatives' are special topics to which we give added emphasis through projects, events, literature and funding. The intent of our varied Initiatives is to help us and our partners move forward to accomplish specific management goals for certain key issues.

The Wildlife Program covers terrestrial animal species not considered 'threatened, endangered or sensitive' species (TES). We have a specific TES program for species with this designation.

The Wildlife Ecology Unit (WEU) primary function is facilitating the transfer of technology and technical information from research to field biologist. The WEU staff serves on technical teams addressing terrestrial watershed management issues, including TES species.
