The Wildlife Tracts program is a cooperative venture between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG), and the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR). These tracts provide islands of permanent wildlife habitat for a variety of wildlife species and allow public access for a number of recreational activities. Wildlife Tracts consist of BLM and USBR managed land, usually surrounded by private agricultural property, and specifically managed as wildlife habitat. There are 289 tracts in the program ranging in size from 10 to 930 acres encompassing over 33,000 acres in South Central Idaho. The success of the Wildlife Tracts program is founded in cooperation and mutual benefit. Landowners, public land managers, wildlife enthusiasts and dozens of bird and mammal species all benefit from the work accomplished through this program.
The zipped shapefile (shp.zip) for ArcGIS and the kml file for Google Earth depict the boundaries of each wildlife tract. The gpx file for download to a GPS unit is the centroid (center point) of each wildlife tract for navigational purposes.
