Interim Changes to the Wildlife Viewing Plan

The Virginia Wildlife Viewing Plan was developed to reflect enduring values related to wildlife viewing in Virginia, and is based on conversations that specifically anticipated future conditions internal and external to the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources that might shape the success of this plan. It is thus expected that the plan’s guidance and priorities will be relevant through 2031. However, this plan is intended to be a dynamic and flexible tool that remains responsive to changing social, environmental, technical, and administrative conditions. Thus, specific objectives and strategies may be added, deleted, or amended by the DWR as new circumstances demand. Updates will be provided as addenda to the plan and posted on this webpage.
