Wildlife Habitat


Habitat is "home" to all fish and wildlife. In its simplest terms, habitat must include food, water, shelter, and space to live. These elements must be arranged in such a way that each is available to the animal.

One can't talk about an animal without referring to its habitat. This is especially true when trying to manage the survival of an animal.

In short, habitat is the key to fish and wildlife management in Montana. These Habitat web pages provide information FWP’s most important fish and wildlife habitat conservation and restoration programs.
