The Department of Game and Fish is revising the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy for New Mexico (CWCS) and will produce the New Mexico State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP). The revised and updated SWAP will serve as a guide for the Department and may help land management agencies, local governments, non-governmental organizations, private sector project proponents, and interested publics when identifying needs and opportunities to conserve New Mexico’s Wildlife.

Update 01-06-2016

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish revised final draft of the State Wildlife Action Plan was approved by the New Mexico State Game Commission at the 17 November 2016 State Game Commission Meeting. This Commission approved version of the State Wildlife Action Plan has been submitted to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for review and approval. This “DRAFT” version will be finalized on approval by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
