The TPWD Wildlife Diversity Program is responsible for managing the state's non-hunted wildlife populations. Comprised of 40 full-time professional scientists, we work closely with the state's conservation community to identify wildlife management and research priorities in Texas. The Wildlife Diversity Program also coordinates the implementation of the Texas Conservation Action Plan, an agency-wide roadmap to recover the 1,308 Species of Greatest Conservation Need. In the Alamo area, our most visible program is the San Antonio Urban Wildlife Program office, which is home to 2 urban wildlife biologist that provide assistance to municipalities and land managers on regional land planning, wildlife conservation, and and natural resource stewardship. We are also pleased to partner with the Teaming With Wildlife Coalition, an organization dedicated to creating a statewide coalition of conservation partners
