Conserving Georgia's Nongame Wildlife - 2008-2009 Expanded Online Two year Report
The Nongame Conservation Section manages Georgia's native diversity of wild animals and plants and their habitats through education, research and management, while also striving to increase public enjoyment of these natural resources. During fiscal 2008 and 2009, the wide-ranging work at NCS included mapping coastal and sandhills habitats, documenting data on native animals to improve species management, helping acquire more than 17,000 acres of priority habitat and funding regional education centers that reached about 100,000 students.
That work is described in the "Conserving Georgia's Nongame Wildlife: 2008-2009 Report" . Download a copy of the report now or click here for an expanded web version of the report.
