Help our nongame and endangered wildlife

There are more than 150 Species of Greatest Conservation Need in Indiana that need your help. Habitat management and conservation programs for these species are supported through the generosity of Hoosiers who donate to the Indiana Nongame Wildlife Fund. No state tax dollars are used to manage these species.

Your donation helps animals such as the endangered barn owl (Video: Live Nest Cam), Allegheny woodrat (Video: Allegheny Woodrats in Southern Indiana) and Eastern hellbender (Video: Releasing Hellbenders in the Blue River).
