Our Mission Statement

The purpose of this web site is to provide information concerning the common species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians found in the State of Georgia. Each species has a home page which contains a description of the animal; its taxonomic relationships; information about the animal's biology, natural history, distribution, and conservation status; and a review of similar animals which might be confused with it. These pages are intended for use by the general public in the identification and study of the natural history of Georgia. Comments are welcome and may be submitted by using the web site's Evaluation Form.

This web site is partially funded through sales of Wildlife License Plates, donations to the "Give Wildlife a Chance" State Income TaxCheckoff, and direct donations to the Wildlife Conservation Fund, Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
