WSGA CCAA/CCA Educational Program details can be found under the News & Issues tab or click here.
A Candidate Conservation Agreement with Assurances(CCAA) is a voluntary agreement between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and a private landowner whereby private landowners agree to manage their lands to remove or reduce threats to species at risk of being listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
An enrolled landowner’s individual CCAA ensures that ongoing private land operations and any additional covered activities described in the umbrella CCAA may continue and the landowner receives incidental take coverage under the ESA for covered activities if greater sage-grouse are listed.
