DNR Wildlife Research Webpage Developed
Posted: 01/29/2013
DES MOINES ― Wildlife research conducted by the DNR research staff or about Iowa’s wildlife has been gathered in one place for interested Web users at

“Since redesigning our website a couple of years ago, we’ve had questions about where our wildlife research and diversity information is located,” says Willie Suchy, DNR wildlife research unit leader.

“We’ve organized our latest research information by the species specialty of our various wildlife research stations: deer, turkey and forest game; upland wildlife and grasslands; waterfowl and wetlands; furbearers; nongame wildlife; and surveys of people’s observations and concerns about Iowa’s wildlife. The newest reports are listed first.”

As new research is completed, those research papers and reports will be posted to or linked from this new web page.
