Oregon is a land of diversity. However, in the face of rapid development and altered landscapes, the work of maintaining the health of our wildlife populations falls to all Oregonians. To ensure that our natural heritage is conserved and to help guide the work of citizens, Oregon has developed a Conservation Strategy.
