Idaho Fish and Wildlife Information System (IFWIS) is a member of NatureServe and houses the Idaho Natural Heritage data. The IFWIS Species Diversity Database management team does not receive 100% of its funding from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. Instead, we depend on building relationships with federal and state agencies, private industry, and non-governmental organizations that become annual sustaining partners.
Partners receive a twice-yearly data export of our entire database. They may use those data for any of their internal needs and may provide data to any contractors working on projects for them. Contact Angie Schmidt, IFWIS Program Manager, to learn more about becoming a partner.
