WSGA CCAA/CCA Educational Program
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).
With significant participation, the umbrella CCAA will improve the status of sage-grouse in Wyoming.
