RALEIGH, N.C. (Jan. 22) – Tax time can be a great time to make a tax-deductible gift to wildlife.

Checking the Line 26 Option of your state income tax form lets you give any portion of your refund to the Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Fund. This fund helps the Wildlife Diversity Program of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission with projects benefiting songbirds, salamanders, crayfish and dozens of other species.

“Giving through the tax check-off provides critical funding for the Wildlife Diversity Program and its work to conserve wildlife and wildlife habitats across the state,” said Chris McGrath, Wildlife Diversity Program coordinator. “Every dollar you give goes to projects that protect sea turtle nests, aid the acquisition and management of colonial waterbird nesting colony islands, monitor freshwater mussels to promote clean water for our future, and research to determine the status of salamanders and songbirds and dozens of other projects. It helps to further our understanding of the natural world and point us towards a future with clean water, abundant natural habitat, and bountiful wildlife populations.”

Although the program targets nongame animals, game species such as smallmouth bass, deer and quail also benefit because they share many of the same habitats.

To learn more about the projects and activities of the Commission’s Wildlife Diversity Program and how your donations are being used, visit North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

Tax season isn’t the only time to give to wildlife. Other ways to help North Carolina’s wildlife and their habitats year-round include:
Donating online at Welcome to N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission
Rounding up your purchase at any of three N.C. Wild Stores
Registering a vehicle with a N.C. Wildlife Conservation license plate
Volunteering to help Commission staff with nongame-related projects

Donations can also be sent to: Non-game and Endangered Wildlife Fund, 1722 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, N.C. 27699-1722. Make checks payable to NCWRC. All donations are tax-deductible.
