Our mission is to serve and educate Iowans about our diverse wildlife resources, their habits, and habitats so as to ensure positive interactions with wildlife and the sustainability of our rich wildlife heritage.
We believe that an understanding of ecological relationships and natural resource management is critical to the economic, biologic, and aesthetic well-being of the people of Iowa.
Thus, we provide information and education that helps all Iowans:
- Appreciate and enhance wildlife and their habitats;
- Wisely manage wildlife resources so that they are sustainable over time;
- Manage habitat for wildlife;
- Manage interactions between people and wildlife.
This website will give you an overview of the programs, publications, and partnerships we use to achieve our mission. We welcome your questions, ideas and suggestions.
