South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks

The Wildlife Division of South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks manages South Dakota’s wildlife and fisheries resources and their associated habitats for their sustained and equitable use, and for the benefit, welfare, and enjoyment of the citizens of our state and its visitors. The Wildlife Division recognizes habitat conservation and management as crucial for sustaining our wildlife trust resources, and offers a number of cost share programs to assist private landowners in developing and conserving wildlife habitat on their property. Wildlife Division biologists and managers work with landowners and other conservation partners to provide technical and financial assistance, and to implement habitat conservation practices that benefit wildlife, including sage grouse, while meeting the needs of landowners.
