Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire

The official non-profit partner of the N.H. Fish and Game Department, the Wildlife Heritage Foundation raises money and works with wildlife professionals and conservation education partners to fund Fish and Game’s conservation of wildlife and natural places. The foundation has supported a wide range of projects, including tracking and mapping of ovigerous female lobsters and monitoring river herring passage over the breached Wadleigh Falls Dam on the Lamprey River. Funding for the foundation’s grants program comes from individual and corporate donors and from the annual auction of fish and game permits and licenses. The foundation accepts general and targeted cash donations, as well as planned gifts and tangible assets; in most cases, contributions are tax-deductible.

To learn more about the foundation or make an online donation, visit nhwildlifeheritage.org or contact (603) 496-2778 or admin@nhwildlifeheritage.org. Thanks for your support!
