HABITAT IMPROVEMENT & RESTORATION FUND

Benefit wildlife and fish by helping to support habitat on public and private lands and waters

Some of the most serious threats to wildlife include habitat destruction, degradation or conversion, and they can affect game and non-game animals alike. The Habitat Improvement and Restoration Fund seeks to help preserve habitat or mitigate habitat loss so that wildlife generations of the future will have a place to find shelter, food, water and suitable reproductive opportunities. Although this fund is focused on suitable habitat for game fish and wildlife, non-game wildlife and fish also benefit from habitat improvements.
