Program accomplishments...

States began implementing WHIP in fiscal year 1998. Over 1.4 million acres are enrolled in the program. The average agreement encompassed 165 acres. Of all acres enrolled, 89 percent are designed for upland habitat, 12 percent for wetland habitat, 3 percent were riparian habitat, and nearly 1 percent in-stream aquatic habitat. It is estimated that approximately 15 percent of the total acreage enrolled in WHIP will benefit threatened and endangered species.
