Wildlife Diversity

The Wildlife Diversity Program works with wildlife species through research, management, and education. We strive to enhance wildlife diversity, and promote sustainable use of those resources including protection of threatened and endangered species, species of greatest conservation need within Kentucky’s Wildlife Action Plan, their habitats and protection of sensitive areas. We will promote the message that all wildlife species and their habitats are vital to sustain a healthy environment.  Explore the items below to learn more about our wildlife diversity species.
