AUGUSTA, Maine -- Maine citizens care deeply about Maine’s rich fish and
wildlife tradition, but what most don’t realize is that protection and
management of some of Maine’s most vulnerable animals are supported solely
through voluntary contributions by people like you.
Over the years, the Chickadee Check-off has helped projects directed at
conserving a number of species, including bald eagles, peregrine falcons,
piping plovers, great blue herons, Canada lynx, several species of bats,
New England cottontail, Blanding’s turtles and several rare freshwater
mussels. Funds from the Check-Off have also aided citizen science projects
like the Maine Butterfly Survey, Maine’s Bumble Bee Atlas and the Maine
Amphibian and Reptile Atlas Project.
This beautiful new poster depicts the 51 native fish and wildlife species
endangered or threatened in Maine. There is identification key, plus
additional habitat and background information about each species on the
back of the poster.
