The Private Lands Wildlife Biologists (PLWBs) listed here are RMBO staff who also represent the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and various other partnering agencies, including Colorado Parks and Wildlife, National Audubon Society, Toyota, Playa Lakes Joint Venture, and/or Nebraska Environmental Trust. This multi-organization partnership is the result of a consensus to strengthen private land habitat conservation efforts.

The priority species for the biologists are Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN), as identified by state wildlife action plans, and species identified by the four major bird conservation initiatives.  The biologists promote and obtain wildlife habitat enhancement projects that can be funded through NRCS conservation programs including: the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP), the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP), the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), the Grassland Reserve Program (GRP) and the Conservation Technical Assistance (CTA) program.
