We must protect our planet and the animals that live there. Animal and plant species that are endangered or threatened are identified and protected under North Carolina’s endangered species policy. This policy is implemented and enforced by the state as well as the federal government.
The Wildlife Diversity Program of the Wildlife Commission manages projects and programs that benefit nongame species. North Carolina is home to more than 700 nongame species, including songbirds and other birds, reptiles and amphibians, freshwater mussels, fish, and crustaceans. Support the Wildlife Diversity Program by contributing to the N.C. Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund. The destruction of habitat and pollution have put dozens of species at risk in North Carolina.

Because of this, I’m passionate about keeping them safe. It’s critical we protect the ones we have left. Here’s more information about protecting wildlife in North Carolina.
