The Department of Game and Fish revised the Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy for New Mexico (CWCS) and produced 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.
