Indiana’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
Indiana stretches from the sandy dunes of Lake Michigan to steep wooded ravines and bluffs along the Ohio River. The Wabash River bisects the state and defines the state’s southwestern border, flowing through fertile prairies, fields and forest. Recovering populations of otters, bald eagles and nesting osprey once again inhabit Indiana’s streams, rivers and lakes. Because most of Indiana’s land and water resources are privately owned, wildlife conservation in Indiana must be a joint effort between public agencies and private land managers. Fortunately, if we invest in the new Indiana Wildlife Action Plan today, we can work with private landowners to conserve wildlife and vital natural areas for future generations.
A Powerful Coalition to Conserve our Wildlife Heritage
More than 175 organizations and businesses from across Indiana have come together to spread the word about the Indiana Wildlife Action Plan and to secure the funding it needs for success. YOU CAN HELP by joining the coalition, engaging organizations in your community and urging our elected officials to support the federal State Wildlife Grants Program and legislation providing long-term, dedicated funding for wildlife conservation and related education and recreation.
