Webinar: Habitat Conservation Options for Threatened and Endangered Species

April 25, 2022

The Iowa Learning Farms (ILF) conservation webinar taking place May 4 at noon CDT will feature Andrew DiAllesandro, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) state private lands coordinator. DiAllesandro works with landowners and farmers to promote voluntary conservation efforts on private lands and provides guidance regarding technical and cost-share assistance to facilitate conservation delivery.

Iowa Learning Farms is an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach conservation and water quality education program.

In the webinar, “Strategic Habitat Conservation for Threatened and Endangered Species,” DiAllesandro will discuss the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Partners for Fish and Wildlife (PFW) Program, a unique offering which promotes efficient achievement of voluntary conservation implementations on private lands. He will highlight the program’s flexibility in achieving conservation deployments and will discuss strategic objectives of the program. The program currently focuses on endangered pollinators and fish, but it also provides benefits beyond those species.

 

“We understand that not every landowner or farmer shares the same conservation goals, and we are committed to finding the best way to work with each one in protecting, managing or creating habitat for endangered and threatened wildlife,” said DiAllesandro. “PFW offers a broad scope of approaches that make it a good choice for many decision makers. We don’t want anyone to be afraid of the terms ‘threatened’ or ‘endangered.’ Just because these terms may apply to local wildlife, it doesn't mean conservation needs to be difficult!”

Participants in Iowa Learning Farms Conservation Webinars are encouraged to ask questions of the presenters. People from all backgrounds and areas of interest are encouraged to join.
