Fisheries & Wildlife
Michigan is home to native big and small game, more than 150 species of fish and more than 400 species of birds – and to a growing number of non-native species that affect fish and wildlife populations. Michigan State University Extension works with fisheries and wildlife agencies and stakeholder organizations to protect and enhance the state’s fish and wildlife populations and habitats. MSUE offers a variety of up-to-date resources in everything from human-wildlife interactions and animal damage control to invasive species identification and commercial and recreational fishing.
