Conserve Wildlife License Plate

Conserve Wildlife License Plate

Support the Endangered Species Program by purchasing a "Conserve Wildlife" license plate. Click for details!
The Division is temporarily restricting access on certain sections/facilities on select Wildlife Management Areas throughout July due to temporary state-mandated employee furloughs, a result of agreements reached between the State and public employee unions to address the economic downturn resulting from the COVID-19 public health emergency. The Division manages the state's WMAs, and is authorized to limit access to these areas in order to protect public health, safety, and the environment during this time pursuant to N.J.A.C. 7:25-2.26.
List of Affected WMAs

Due to state mandated furloughs during the month of July, routine Division activities, as well as the response time to e-mails and phone inquiries, will be delayed. We apologize for any inconvenience.
