The DFHP strategic action plan provides the critically needed framework for integrating conservation on a broad scale by utilizing state wildlife action plans and existing multi-species conservation plans to identify and prioritize necessary conservation actions to sustain desert fish habitats.
The DFHP is dedicated to active support of those actions that will result in the protection and enhancement of important desert fish habitats.
The Framework for Strategic Conservation of Desert Fishes is a goal-oriented, science-based, strategic action plan that explicitly states DFHP goals, provides guidance for decision-making, and identifies methods for evaluating success.
It is comprised of four key components:
(2) principal goals
(3) conservation priorities
(4) strategic conservation actions to address priorities and attain goals
