FWP website sports new fish and wildlife pages
by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks
January 18, 2012

Montanans can learn a lot about the state's fish and wildlife on Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks' new "Fish & Wildlife" website section at fwp.mt.gov, a new, easy to navigate reference on how FWP manages the state's fish and wildlife species.

Here you will find information on:
conservation,
management,
rehabilitation,
nongame wildlife,
species of special interest, and
access to licenses and permits for wildlife possession, exotic species and ponds.

A section on diseases, health and wildlife research projects will be available soon.

"The goal is to put similar content in the same place to make it easier for the public to browse and find what they need," said Ron Aasheim, FWP spokesman.

The new pages narrate the story of conservation in Montana, then allow users to delve deeper into subjects of special interest. Users can learn about species conservation in general, or learn in detail about the conservation efforts relating to a species of special interest.

There is an extensive section on birds and bird monitoring, research, habitat conservation, education and associated activities.

"FWP's new fish and wildlife web pages are bursting with interesting facts, great photos and access to the conservation and management plans that guide FWP's field work today," Aasheim said.

Learn about Montana's nongame wildlife species and what is being done to conserve them, how to live safely and comfortably with wildlife, or how to locate a map of a wildlife management area, the date it opens and what you can expect to find there.

"It is also easier now to locate new opportunities to comment on decisions that are going to be made soon that relate specifically to nongame issues," Aasheim said. "This week the Future Fisheries Improvement Program grant applications and bison management are open to comment."

To check out FWP's new web section, go to fwp.mt.gov and click Fish & Wildlife on the top navigation bar.
