activities include both planning and implementation.
Planning activities must contribute directly to the development or modification of the Stateâ¿¿s current Wildlife Action Plan (Plan) approved by the Director of the Service.
Implementation activities are activities that a State intends to carry out to execute their Plan.
Priority for use of these funds should be placed on those species of greatest conservation need and take into consideration the relative level of funding available for the conservation of those species.
Ineligible activities include wildlife education and law enforcement activities, unless the law enforcement or education component is a minor or incidental activity and is considered critical to the success of a project.
