WILDLIFE

A favorite topic for many Envirothon participants, the Wildlife section allows students to learn firsthand from wildlife professionals about animal populations and their dynamics, and the importance of habitat conservation.

The information below is designed to assist you in preparing for the Wildlife section of this year’s New Hampshire Envirothon. The Wildlife section will evaluate your knowledge of general wildlife biology and basic wildlife management. You will need to understand basic ecology, and habitat management concepts and principles. In addition, you should become familiar with this year’s theme as it relates to wildlife.
