The state Department of Natural Resources is asking members of the public to voice their thoughts on key conservation plans.
The agency is currently reviewing its Wildlife Action and Fish, Wildlife, and Habitat Management plans. DNR conservation biologist Tara Bergeson says, to continue receiving federal funding for a wide range of programs, they need public feedback. She says “we want to know what Wisconsin citizens think is important, in terms of fish and wildlife, their habitats, and outdoor recreation opportunities in Wisconsin.”
Bergeson says an online survey has been posted for the public to provide input about current policies, and to offer ideas for the future. She says “we’re asking kind of broad questions…What do you care about? What concerns do you have…both now and as you think about the future?”
The survey will be active through November 14.
