Studying and learning about wildlife is fun for people of all ages. Wildlife exists all around us, regardless of where you live. The 4-H Wildlife project was developed for youth who enjoy wildlife and want to learn more about Indiana wildlife. The first manual introduces some important general wildlife concepts while the higher levels delve into more detail, in­cluding species interactions and wildlife management.
