Wildlife Species in New Hampshire


New Hampshire is home to a great diversity of wildlife species, with habitats that range from coastal islands to alpine tundra. The NH Fish & Game Department is the agency responsible for guarding the state's fish, wildlife, and marine resources.  UNH Cooperative Extension staff work very closely with NH Fish & Game to manage for and protect the state's wildlife.  Many of the links below will bring you to NH Fish & Game's pages.
