The Best Practices for State Wildlife Action Plans (SWAPs) report was approved by the Teaming With Wildlife (TWW) Committee at the AFWA Annual Meeting in September 2012. The goal was to raise the bar for SWAPs by identifying best practices based on innovations and lessons learned from the years since SWAPs were developed.
