Massachusetts’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
In Massachusetts, the landscape ranges from calcium-rich valleys of western Massachusetts to the cold, acidic Worcester Plateau, and from the mountains of the Taconics and the Berkshires to the floodplains of the Connecticut River Valley.
The loss of habitat and impacts to wildlands and wildlife from increased water usage and pollution are the main threats addressed in the Massachusetts wildlife action plan. The primary challenge to conserving wildlife in Massachusetts is protecting enough habitat to support the species identified as being in greatest need of conservation. Fortunately, if we invest in the Massachusetts 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 150 organizations and businesses from across Massachusetts have come together to spread the word about the Massachusetts 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.
