Indiana’s SWAP is a habitat-based model that incorporates all fish and wildlife species in the state. It identifies the condition of Indiana’s wildlife species and habitats, the problems they face, and the actions needed to ensure the long-term viability of these species and habitats. Since conservation efforts occur at many levels (e.g., local, state, and federal), it is imperative to unite the entire Indiana conservation community by focusing on strengthening partnerships to accelerate conservation in the state. The input of all Indiana’s 600+ identified stakeholders is vital to the success of the 2015 SWAP. The Eppley Institute developed the following recommendation report to inform the 2015 SWAP process.
