Department of Natural Resources
Thoughtful wildlife and habitat management supports Michigan's multi-billion-dollar natural resources economy – including hunting, fishing, camping, trail use and other outdoor recreation. Through collaborative, scientific management of wildlife resources, our goal is to enhance, restore and conserve Michigan's wildlife resources, natural communities, and ecosystems for the benefit of our citizens, visitors, and future generations.
Many wildlife are well adapted to living near people and as they become accustomed to humans they may cause conflicts. Options for handling issues will vary by species.
