Conservation doesn’t just happen. It requires effort and resources. The DNR has taken advantage of an opportunity to identify and begin to integrate the broad range of existing efforts that conserve Indiana wildlife and the habitats upon which they depend. This strategy documents an ongoing process to increase collaboration within the DNR and among many organizations across the state that work for conservation. The DNR is committed to seeking ways to knit our various programs more closely together to ensure they are efficiently focused on enhanced resource conservation.
Hoosiers work together to build the future, whether in manufacturing, agriculture, or wildlife conservation. Remembering that a wise tinkerer keeps all the parts, we intend to conserve all our natural resources to sustain economic development and contribute to quality of life for our citizens and visitors.
