General Information

Vermonters Care

Vermonters care about wildlife. In fact, a new national survey found that our state ranks number two in terms of the percentage of a state's population participating in wildlife-based recreation. That is why, from its earliest foundation, the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department has provided a broad range of services and programs to protect and conserve the state's diverse fish and wildlife resources.

The department is primarily funded by hunting and fishing license fees plus federal excise taxes on hunting and fishing equipment and boating fuels.

Public support is key to our success

Donations, from people like you who enjoy and care about Vermont's rich natural heritage, have also been critical for a variety of fish and wildlife conservation success stories. A thriving osprey population, increased numbers of the common loon and peregrine falcon, and the preservation of seeds of regionally rare plants are a few of the successes achieved through contributions to special funds dedicated to specific programs.

Your support is greatly needed and appreciated. There are several methods by which you can help: By contributing to any of these funds or by volunteering your time, you help ensure the department continues to have the resources it needs to accomplish its mission "To protect and conserve our fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the people of Vermont." Your support makes a difference!
