Collect Wildlife Data and Information

The wildlife data and information needed for the Wildlife section of your Natural Resources Inventory can be collected from several sources - you can use this information to document wildlife species information and to describe the critical habitats occurring in your community.

Wildlife Species Information

 Wildlife Habitats Information

  • Each of the 27 critical habitats identified in the NH Wildlife Action Plan has a detailed profile in Appendix B of the Wildlife Action Plan.
  • Twelve of the critical habitats are covered in the Habitat Stewardship Brochure series
  • Additional habitat information is available on the Habitat Types web page. You can incorporate sections of this text in your NRI, but be sure to customize it for your town (e.g. focus on the habitats in your community, wildlife species that have been observed locally, etc.)

Rare, threatened or endangered plant or animal species

Information about Threats to Wildlife

  • Review the Wildlife Risk Assessments (Chapter 4) and the information on specific threats, such as climate change, pollution, development, etc. and incorporate information about these threats to wildlife and habitats.
