Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program
(watch the new nongame video above)
N.H. Fish and Game's Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program, established in 1988, is the steward for the state's nongame wildlife -- 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. The program works in cooperation with other New Hampshire agencies and organizations to develop and implement effective conservation strategies to protect and enhance this diverse group of wildlife.

Funding the Nongame Program
- Each year, the Nongame Program must raise $50,000 through private contributions to meet a matching grant from the state. That means your contributions toward this annual goal are matched dollar for dollar! (Click here to donate.)
- Federal funds called State Wildlife Grants also provide essential funding for the Nongame Program. Click here to learn how State Wildlife Grants are helping N.H. wildlife.
