Staff with the Wildlife Commission’s Wildlife Diversity Program conduct projects and programs that benefit nongame species — animals without an open hunting, fishing, or trapping season. More than 700 nongame species call North Carolina home and include songbirds and other birds, reptiles and amphibians, freshwater mussels, fish and crustaceans, and mammals. Support the Wildlife Diversity Program by contributing to the N.C. Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund.
The purpose of the Alliance for America’s Fish and Wildlife is to secure funding for much needed conservation of our most precious natural resources, our fish and wildlife. The Alliance is actively pursuing secure, annual funding for implementation of state’s Wildlife Action Plans.
