Wild Link - An Innovative Partnership for Regional Habitat Conservation

Abstract:

The Conservation Resource Alliance (CRA), a Michigan RC&D Council, is demonstrating a unique, efficient delivery framework for conserving natural resources of importance to northern Michigan tribes and communities, including water, fisheries, wildlife, and forests. The approach offers technical assistance and management planning to drive voluntary projects undertaken by landowners in the most critical corridor areas of northern Michigan. This delivery system, titled “Wild Link” concentrates benefits in the most ecologically valuable areas for maximum impact. Practices and habitats of importance to tribes are being integrated into the program. Landowners and local communities are unconcerned with which government program provides assistance with projects, because the technical staff of CRA and its regional partners provides planning, coordinating, and fund-directing assistance.

The Wild Link approach has advantages of providing measurable benefits to water quality and wildlife; addressing the needs of all landowners (especially non-traditional family-based working operations); and improving natural resources regionally.

This demonstration project is funded through a $500,000 grant from the Conservation Innovation Grant program, and will leverage a minimum of $505,000 from many different private and public sources.

In the first two years, 16 on-the-ground habitat improvement projects have been completed in a region of high-quality natural resources that support Michigan’s $12 billion tourism industry and also provide subsistence for tribes. Projects range from food plots and timber stand improvements to dam removals and stream crossing enhancements that improve habitat. The tangible successes have also served to motivate local partners, and raise the region’s “IQ” for managing resources.
