Protecting State Threatened and Endangered Species
The NH Fish and Game Department, in collaboration with other state and federal permitting authorities, participates in the review and evaluation of various activities that propose to disturb or modify lands and waters and that need state permits or approvals. Project review for state threatened or endangered wildlife species may be required for certain projects as determined by various state laws and regulations (e.g., RSA 212-A and Fis 1000, see links below).
