Protecting Michigan’s Forests, Waters and Wildlife

To ensure that the wildlife that populate Michigan’s waters and forests continue to thrive, Michigan uses scientifically based conservation and wildlife management methods. And while wildlife management is a complex process, the ultimate goal is to protect, maintain or restore wildlife populations and strive for a balance that benefits public, private and wildlife interests.

These conservation efforts are funded by the sale of Michigan hunting and fishing licenses to help ensure that our natural resources are here for everyone — and future generations — to enjoy.
