New Jersey’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
New Jersey Landscape Zones New Jersey sits at the convergence of the east coast’s northern and southern ecosystems. Its inland forests are home to resident bobcats, barred owls, and timber rattlesnakes, and provide essential stopover habitat for most of the eastern U.S. migratory population of songbirds and raptors. At the same time, the state’s Atlantic and Delaware Bay coastal habitats are home to bald eagles, northern harriers and piping plovers.
Under the leadership of the Division of Fish and Wildlife, partner conservation agencies and stakeholder groups from across the state collaborated to create the New Jersey action plan, which identifies habitat fragmentation, invasive species, and contaminants as leading statewide threats. Fortunately, if we invest in the New Jersey Wildlife Action Plan today, we can conserve wildlife and vital natural areas for future generations.
A Powerful Coalition to Conserve our Wildlife Heritage
More than 75 organizations and businesses from across New Jersey have come together to spread the word about the New Jersey 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.
