Animals of Idaho

Efforts have been made to preserve Idaho’s soils, forests, water, and wildlife. The principal conservation agencies active in Idaho include the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the United States Forest Service, the Idaho Forestry Management Bureau, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the Idaho Fish and Game Department, the United States Bureau of Reclamation, and the United States Bureau of Land Management.

In 2008 the state had 6 hazardous waste sites on a national priority list for cleanup due to their severity or proximity to people.

Soil erosion can be severe in much of the state’s farm and rangelands, especially in areas of dry, finely textured soil such as in the Palouse region. Efforts to prevent erosion of agricultural lands include contour plowing on steep slopes and resowing of grass on slopes too steep for cultivation. On eroded grazing lands, reseeding to provide a new grass cover and a reduction of the numbers of livestock per acre are encouraged. One of the most serious problems is the destruction of the bunchgrass, as a result of overgrazing. "Idaho" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
