Input sought on NH wildlife action plan

CONCORD — New Hampshire residents have one final opportunity to weigh on the state's road map for conserving wildlife in the state.

The state recently completed its revision of the Wildlife Action Plan that will set priorities for the next 10 years, including how to address the needs of threatened and endangered wildlife.

The revised plan includes 177 species of greatest conservation need, 54 more than were included in the 2005 plan. Officials say much of the increase is attributed to greater knowledge about dragonflies and bumblebees. Some species, including osprey, are doing so well they've been moved off the list. Others, including several bat species, are new additions.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game department has posted the plan online, and public input will be accepted through Aug. 17.
