Help Indiana's nongame fish and wildlife

There are more than 750 endangered and nongame animals in Indiana that need your help. Wildlife Diversity personnel within the Division of Fish & Wildlife oversee the management of these species to prevent the loss of wildlife diversity in Indiana. All of the funding comes from Hoosiers like you who donate to the Indiana Nongame Fund. No state tax dollars are used.

Every donation can make a difference to Indiana's nongame fish and wildlife. Bald eagles, river otters, ospreys, and peregrine falcons are four species who have benefited from the Indiana Nongame Fund. Restoration projects, paid for by this fund, have successfully increased the numbers of these species in Indiana. However, the work is far from over. Please consider donating today.
