Endangered and Threatened Wildlife of NH

Nongame Program logo
Endangered wildlife
are those native species whose prospects for survival in New Hampshire are in danger because of a loss or change in habitat, over-exploitation, predation, competition, disease, disturbance or contamination. Assistance is needed to ensure continued existence as a viable component of the state's wildlife community.

 

Threatened wildlife are those species which may become endangered if conditions surrounding them begin, or continue, to decline.
