Fish, Wildlife & Parks has a mandate to manage all wildlife species, not just those that are harvested. While hunters and anglers contribute license revenue towards the management of game species and fish, no license is required for wildlife viewing, photography, or bird feeding. The new State Wildlife Grants (SWG) provide federal funding that is targeted towards species that have little or no funding under traditional wildlife programs. Nongame Wildlife Checkoff contributions provide an important source of the required nonfederal match for using these funds. Nongame Wildlife Checkoff contributions will provide an important source of funding for community-based projects such as Montana Nature and Birding Trails. Your contributions to the Nongame Wildlife Checkoff will help FWP serve Montana and its wildlife by allowing us to manage these important species for the enjoyment of all.
