DNREC : Division of Fish & Wildlife : Delaware Private Lands Assistance Program

Delaware Private Lands Assistance Program

Background

Delaware is a biologically diverse state of hardwood forests, swamps and coastal marshes that support over 400 species of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians. Despite significant strides in conservation, much of the wildlife habitat in Delaware remains isolated, degraded and unprotected as more land is converted to urban, commercial and industrial uses.

Over 80 percent of the available and/or restorable wildlife habitat in Delaware occurs on private lands. The future of Delaware’s wildlife and habitat resources hinges on finding cooperative solutions with Delaware’s private landowners to restore and enhance wildlife habitat on their properties.

Realizing this, the Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife reorganized its staff to devote more energy to assisting private landowners improve and protect their lands for wildlife. The DFW has two biologists devoted to informing landowners about available programs, providing technical assistance in developing habitat projects and securing financial assistance as incentives for participation.
