New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection

For decades, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Endangered and Nongame Species Program has been working to restore and protect wildlife such as bald eagles, bobcats, bog turtles, red knots, piping plovers, osprey, Pine Barrens tree frogs and much more. You can help protect rare wildlife by supporting the New Jersey Endangered Wildlife Fund when filing your state income tax return. Look for Line 59 on your NJ 1040 return and check off for wildlife, or remind your tax preparer that you want to make a contribution. Every dollar you donate goes directly to restoring and conserving rare wildlife species. Your contribution has even more meaning this year as the DEP updates the State Wildlife Action Plan, which will guide wildlife conservation decisions over the next decade.
