A second chance to donate to Minnesota’s wildlife

Minnesotans who forgot to donate to the line with the loon on their state tax forms now have a second chance to help the state’s wildlife population, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said.

To donate to the DNR nongame wildlife program, visit the DNR’s website.

More than 800 nongame wildlife species depend on donations. The nongame wildlife program receives 80 percent of its funding through donations.

Last year 66,000 Minnesotans donated to the line with the loon on their tax forms, compared with 88,000 people 10 years ago, said Carrol Henderson, DNR nongame wildlife program supervisor.
