What is IPaC Usfws?

Recent improvements to the USFWS Information for Planning and Conservation (IPaC) tool allow users to quickly and easily identify USFWS managed resources in project areas, such as threatened and endangered species, for transportation projects.

Where are black-footed ferrets found?

Black-footed ferrets once ranged throughout the North American Great Plains wherever prairie dog colonies thrived, from southern Canada to northern Mexico. Today, they have been reintroduced into parts of their former range in Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana and Arizona. Black-footed ferrets are very vocal.

What are the threats to the black-footed ferret?

Threats to black-footed ferrets include loss of habitat, loss of prairie dogs, plague and human intolerance.

What is IPaC in healthcare?

Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC)

How do I cite IPaC?

Can you have a black-footed ferret as a pet?

A black-footed ferret is secretive, nocturnal, and solitary. Black-footed ferrets are the only native species of ferrets native to North America. The domestic ferrets that you find in pet stores are of European origin and have been domesticated for hundreds of years.

Do black-footed ferrets eat prairie dogs?

Black-footed Ferrets rely on prairie dogs for food and shelter. Prairie dogs make up 90% of their diet.

How can the black-footed ferret be saved?

Protecting Black-Footed Ferrets WWF and partners maintain existing ferret sites, establish new reintroduction sites by relocating prairie dogs to increase ferret habitat, mitigate sylvatic plague on prairie dog colonies and participate in oral vaccine research to better protect prairie dogs from sylvatic plague.

Why should the black-footed ferret be saved?

The ferrets are key indicators of healthy ecosystems as they help manage prairie dog populations. The ferrets themselves are a food source for larger predators like owls, coyote and badgers. They are important members of the ecosystem both as predators and prey on the prairie.

Does IPAC include all species?

IPaC includes only those species for which USFWS is the sole lead agency or for which USFWS and NOAA Fisheries share the lead responsibilities. To obtain a list of species in your project area for which NOAA Fisheries is the sole lead agency, you will need to contact NOAA Fisheries. How often is IPaC updated? IPaC is updated on an ongoing basis.

Is IPAC fully tested with my browser version?

IPaC is not fully tested with your browser version. Please update to a newer version if possible. Quickly and easily identify USFWS managed resources and suggested conservation measures for your project.

What is IPAC and how does it work?

IPaC is a tool to assist project proponents in increasing the compatibility of their activities with the conservation of USFWS trust resources.

How should I design my project location in IPAC?

When designating your project location in IPaC, the USFWS recommends that you consider not only the physical location of project activities, but also any surrounding area on the landscape where potential effects to species may occur (i.e., consider both direct and indirect effects).
