The vast majority of wildlife in Iowa is species not hunted, trapped or fished. Sometimes called "nongame" wildlife, they include shorebirds, raptors, songbirds, small mammals and bats, most amphibians, reptiles, many small fish, butterflies, dragonflies and more – a wide diversity of wildlife, indeed.
Through research, habitat management and long-range planning, the DNR’s wildlife team is working with Iowans to ensure a healthy ecosystem for all of Iowa’s wildlife and for years to come.
