At this time, the Yurok Wildlife Program’s work mostly involves native bird species.


  • For compliance with the Endangered Species Act, we conduct Marbled Murrelet and Spotted Owl surveys for the Tribe’s Forestry Department and write the associated components of the biological assessments for proposed timber harvest units.  Funding for this comes from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.


  • YWLP installs and maintains Wood Duck nest boxes along streams on and near the Yurok Reservation with funding from a US Fish and Wildlife Service North American Wetland Conservation Act grant.


  • •YWLP is working with the Tribe’s Environmental Program to initiate a breeding bird study in and around remnant prairies.  This is to establish baseline information in anticipation of the Tribe’s planned prairie restoration efforts.
