In support of rare and threatened wildlife
Wisconsin’s unique geography means our state is rich with wildlife species that live in different types of habitat. We are one of the only states with endangered species such as the Kirtland’s warbler, the whooping crane, the Poweshiek skipperling butterfly, and the rusty-patched bumble bee.
However, more than 400 Wisconsin species are considered Species of Greatest Conservation Need. This means that they are already listed as threatened or endangered, or that their populations are low or at risk, and will continue to decline without our help.
