Kentucky’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
Diversity is the keyword when describing Kentucky. The rugged mountains and valleys with flat ridge tops found in the east contrast sharply compared to the flat bottom lands and sloughs of the west. Between these extremes can be found the cave country surrounding Mammoth Cave and the gently rolling hills of the Bluegrass Region. Kentucky’s wide variety of terrestrial habitat types, ranging from highland forests, grassland barrens, and swamps, supports a variety of animals. Small headwater streams, winding creeks, and the expansive Ohio and Mississippi Rivers support an even more diverse group of fish and mussels. Fortunately, if we invest in the Kentucky Wildlife Action Plan today, we can conserve this spectacular wildlife heritage and vital natural areas for future generations.
A Powerful Coalition to Conserve our Wildlife Heritage
Almost 30 organizations and businesses from across Kentucky have come together to spread the word about the Kentucky Wildlife Action Plan and to secure the funding it needs for success. YOU CAN HELP by joining the coalition, engaging organizations in your community and urging our elected officials to support the federal State Wildlife Grants Program and legislation providing long-term, dedicated funding for wildlife conservation and related education and recreation. You can also help as an individual by joining the Kentucky Conservation Coalition.
