Texas Conservation Action Plan: TCAP Handbooks
By: Wendy Connally, Editor - Texas Parks and Wildlife Department
While the Texas Conservation Action Plan (TCAP) is a conservation plan for resources most at risk, its primary purpose is to bring people together to realize conservation benefits, prevent species listings, and preserve our natural heritage for future generations. Handbooks contain informaton on Species of Greatest Conservation Need, regionally important habitats, local conservation goals and projects, regional and statewide activities, contact information for conservation partners, and maps. The activities in each handbook are starting points to engage land owners, land-use planners, natural resources professionals, and the public in regional and local community-based conservation.
