You can help animal species such as bald eagles, peregrine falcons, barn owls, box turtles, black bears and more by donating to the Indiana Nongame Wildlife Fund as you do your taxes. The Indiana Nongame Wildlife Fund supports the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Wildlife Diversity program. Program staff manages more than 750 nongame and endangered wildlife species. Nongame means the species is not hunted, trapped or fished. You can donate all or a portion of your state tax refund to the Indiana Nongame Wildlife Fund. If you file with paper forms, look for the eagle logo on Schedule 5/Schedule IN-Donate. If you file through online tax programs, you will be prompted to donate at the end of filing, and the eagle logo will not be present. You can also become a wildlife donor online by going to: http://www.in.gov/dnr/fishwild/3316.htm. If you would like to stay up-to-date on all the Indiana Nongame Wildlife Fund projects and programs, sign up for the nongame wildlife newsletter at EndangeredWildlife.IN.gov.
