The DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife manages 19 public wildlife areas — approximately 68,000 acres of land. In addition to providing habitat for a variety of wildlife, these lands provide hunting and other outdoor recreational opportunities.

The Wildlife Section oversees hunting, hunting seasons and other game-related programs, as well as key wildlife and habitat conservation and education initiatives like the Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program and the Delaware Shorebird Monitoring Project, among many others.

And the Division maintains elevated wildlife viewing platforms in several state wildlife areas.
