Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey is the only statewide nonprofit organization focused solely on threatened, endangered and imperiled species of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and invertebrates. The nonprofit’s website, conservewildlifenj.org, now features a field guide offering in-depth information on species of special concern.

The New Jersey Endangered and Threatened Species Field Guide includes more than 200 rare species in the state, including birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and fish. Search the guide by species, common name, scientific name or conservation status, or browse the entire list of creatures.

When users click on an animal, they’ll be directed to a site that lists species group, scientific classification and conservation status, as well as details about identification; distribution and habitat; diet; life cycle; and current threats, status and conservation.

Check out the field guide at conservewildlifenj.org.
