CONCORD, N.H. — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Departmentʼs Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program needs your help to put New Hampshireʼs Wildlife Action Plan in high gear through outreach, field work and research. The special appeal focuses on implementing the newly revised plan, which is a
10-year blueprint for conserving nongame wildlife in New Hampshire through 2026. “The new plan identifies even more species and habitats at risk than we saw ten years ago,” said John Kanter, Supervisor of the N.H. Fish and Game Departmentʼs Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program. “By contributing
to this special appeal, you will be helping us fund our workshop series we are holding throughout the state to get the Plan into the hands of conservation commissions, land trusts, landowners and other interested citizens. Your support will help us begin to act on these priorities.”
As a part of the revision process, scientists identified where and how wildlife will be affected over the next ten years and what actions need to be taken to prevent further losses of the most vulnerable species and habitats. Sustained wildlife and habitat research and education is critical to the future protection of New Hampshire wildlife. Those interested can show their support for helping to begin work on this exciting plan by donating online at www.nhfishandgame.com/Donations.aspx, or by mail at www.wildnh.com/nongame/donate.html Make your tax-deductible contribution by December 31, 2015.
The Wildlife Action Plan is one of the most cost-effective data-driven tools the state has to protect important wildlife and the habitats they need to survive.

Fish and Game Department’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program is the steward for species not hunted, fished or trapped. Through wildlife monitoring and management, plus outreach and education, the Nongame Program works to protect over 400 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians, as well as thousands of insects and other invertebrates.
