Though small in size, Delaware is rich in natural treasures. From the coastal beaches and dunes to freshwater wetlands and upland forests, the first state harbors a bounty of wildlife and habitats.
Funds appropriated by Congress through the State Wildlife Grants program require states to demonstrate comprehensive wildlife conservation needs. This includes all species and all habitats. Delaware's Division of Fish and Wildlife is actively involved in this process and has created a Delaware Wildlife Action Plan to coordinate wildlife conservation practices in the 21st century.
