Programs of the Wildlife Division

Habitat Resources Program

The Habitat Resources Program helps guide land-use activities in Oregon that affect fish and wildlife habitats. The program offers tax incentives, grants and technical assistance to private and public landowners, businesses and governments to promote conservation of fish and wildlife habitats, and to ensure environmental protection standards are met.

Oregon Conservation Strategy

The Oregon Conservation Strategy provides a blueprint and action plan for the long-term conservation of Oregon’s native fish and wildlife and their habitats through a non-regulatory, statewide approach to conservation. Oregon Conservation Strategy

Oregon Habitat Joint Venture

The Oregon Habitat Joint Venture is a loose coalition of private conservation organizations working with government agencies to protect and restore important habitats for birds and wildlife. The joint venture helps put together partnerships for a variety of habitat-related projects, including habitat restoration and enhancement on private and public lands, acquisition of key areas for permanent protection, and development of educational and interpretive programs.

Conservation Program

Oregon's rich and varied landscape supports an amazing diversity of wildlife. Our state is home to about 600 vertebrate species of nongame wildlife―animals that are not fished, trapped or hunted. In fact, 88 % of our wildlife are nongame species including freshwater fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.

ODFW's Conservation Program is chartered with serving this large nongame population through management and conservation programs. The program also seeks to inform, to educate and to enhance recreational opportunities involving wildlife.

Wildlife Habitat Programs

This statewide program is one of four principle programs within the Wildlife Division of the agency. Program objectives are to protect, maintain, and enhance wildlife habitat to meet Oregon’s Wildlife Policy by: 1) manipulating habitat, 2) acquiring land, 3) developing habitat management and restoration techniques, 4) providing technical assistance to state, federal, tribal, and local agencies and individuals; and, 5) providing funding through grants for habitat protection, restoration and enhancement.

Five subprograms are contained within the Wildlife Habitat Program

Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program

The ODFW Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program was created to manage the funds dedicated to the State of Oregon by the Bonneville Power Administration for wildlife habitat mitigation in the Willamette Valley. The agreement requires a substantial investment in wildlife and fish habitat restoration over the next 15 years. ODFW Willamette Wildlife Mitigation Program
