Established by The Wild Resource Conservation Act of 1982, the Wild Resource Conservation Program is a part of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The program works closely with the Pennsylvania Game Commission and Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission to conduct and support research, conservation and education projects focused on preserving Pennsylvania’s biodiversity. The program has developed County Natural Heritage Inventories that locate and identify rare species and special habitats in all 67 Pennsylvania Counties.
