Alabama’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
Alabama’s lands and waters are rich with fish and wildlife. The state owes its biological wealth to an abundance of water, moderate climate and complex terrain, varying from the Cumberland Plateau in the north to the Coastal Plain in the south. Significant rainfall feeds more than 77,000 miles of rivers and streams. Alabama surpasses all eastern states in plant and animal diversity and exceeds any other state in diversity of freshwater fish and invertebrates.
Alabama’s land and waterscapes are threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation, loss of natural community integrity, impacts from disturbance and exotic species, and lack of adequate protection and/or information. Fortunately, if we invest in the Alabama Wildlife Action Plan today, we can conserve wildlife and vital natural areas for future generations.
A Powerful Coalition to Conserve our Wildlife Heritage
More than 40 organizations and businesses from across Alabama have come together to spread the word about the Alabama Wildlife Action Plan and to secure the funding it needs for success. YOU CAN HELP by joining the coalition, engaging organizations in your community and urging our elected officials to support the federal State Wildlife Grants Program and legislation providing long-term, dedicated funding for wildlife conservation and related education and recreation.
Alabama Wildlife Action Plan
The Alabama wildlife action plan places particular emphasis on the needs of species whose populations are declining from habitat loss and fragmentation in order to proactively stop such declines.
