Wildlife Extension

Eagle Chicks Hatch in Decorah.
Raptor Resource Project Decorah Eagle Cam has a "birds eye view" of the new babies.

Our mission is to serve and educate people about Iowa's wildlife resources so that Iowans can make informed decisions that impact wildlife and their habitats.

We believe that an understanding of ecological relationships and natural resource management is critical to the economic, biologic and aesthetic well-being of the people of Iowa.

Thus, we provide information and education that helps people to:

  • appreciate and enhance wildlife resources;
  • wisely manage wildlife resources so that they are sustainable over time;
  • manage habitat for wildlife;
  • manage interactions between people and wildlife.

This website will give you an overview of the programs, publications, and partnerships we use to achieve our mission. We welcome your questions, ideas and suggestions.

Note: We include off-site links to "eXtension" when this infomation supplements the content developed by ISU Wildlife Extension. is a partner web site containing researched-based knowledge from land-grant university's across the United States.
