Remember wildlife at tax time

Wildlife lovers can help conserve North Carolina’s nongame and rare wildlife species — and their habitats — by making a donation on line No. 30 of the N.C. income tax form.

The Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund helps the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission pursue projects that conserve wildlife species without a designated hunting season. Game species such as deer, turkey and bear also tend to benefit from these same projects, as they often share habitats with the nongame species targeted.

Since the fund’s inception in 1984, taxpayers have donated more than $11 million to projects such as restoring mussels to the Cheoah and Pigeon rivers, and enhancing populations of robust redhorse and sicklefin redhorse, two large imperiled fish.
