MADISON — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is currently revising two key conservation plans – the Wildlife Action Plan and Fish, Wildlife, and Habitat Management Plan [PDF]. Through completion of an online questionnaire, the public can give the department valuable input regarding Wisconsin’s fish and wildlife resources management.

“We take great pride in our efforts to involve the public in our conservation efforts,” said DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp. “These two plans are the driving force behind much of the department’s federal funding, and will help Wisconsin continue to provide for such a wide range of outdoor activities.”

The Wildlife Action Plan and Fish, Wildlife, and Habitat Management Plan act as a blueprint for how the department will manage and protect Wisconsin’s fish and wildlife resources over the next ten years.

The department must complete each plan in order to receive federal funding that will help support healthy, sustainable fish and wildlife populations and their habitats. Funding is also key for the creation and maintenance of outdoor recreation opportunities throughout the state.

Public involvement is a key piece of the puzzle in ensuring the state remains a leader in resource management and protection.

An online survey is one component of a comprehensive public outreach effort associated with updating the Wildlife Action Plan and Fish, Wildlife, and Habitat Management Plan. The survey will close Nov. 14 at midnight.

Statement from DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp on Judge Peter Anderson’s ruling on the use of dogs for wolf hunting

We are pleased that Judge Anderson removed the injunction that banned the use of dogs for hunting wolves. However, we are disappointed with Judge Anderson’s decision to prohibit training of dogs to hunt wolves.

We will continue to seek input from the public and from stakeholders – including tribes – as we continue to develop permanent rules on the wolf season, and the use of dogs for both training and hunting of wolves.
