Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department

About Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department

The department's mission is "the conservation of fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the people of Vermont." Other challenges include providing quality fish and wildlife-based recreation and reaching Vermonters with the best possible information about these resources.

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is one of three departments in the Agency of Natural Resources. Our $20 million (annual budget) is funded by three major sources: user-based fees such as licenses, excise taxes on gasoline and on hunting and fishing equipment, and state general funds.
