Wildlife Species in New Hampshire
New Hampshire is home to a great diversity of wildlife species, with habitats that range from coastal islands to alpine tundra. The NH Fish & Game Department is the agency responsible for guarding the state's fish, wildlife, and marine resources. UNH Cooperative Extension staff work very closely with NH Fish & Game to manage for and protect the state's wildlife. Many of the links below will bring you to NH Fish & Game's pages.
