State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP)


To more proactively safeguard our state’s natural heritage, the Wildlife Resources Division, along with other conservation organizations, developed a comprehensive wildlife conservation strategy. Work on this statewide management plan started in December 2002 and incorporated years of research and data accumulated by DNR staff and other natural resource organizations. Funding came through a State Wildlife Grant, with matching funds from Georgia’s Nongame Wildlife Conservation Fund. Creating a guide for the DNR and other conservation groups to follow proved a complex task, requiring input from several state and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, land managers, various other stakeholders and the public. Approved by the US Fish and Wildlife Service in October 2005, Georgia’s wildlife conservation strategy is now dubbed the State Wildlife Action Plan, or SWAP.

Georgia Wildlife Federation has served on the steering committee for the State Wildlife Action Plan since it began in 2002 and continues to promote implementation of the plan and the State Wildlife Grant Program.
