Their cooperation in supplying information and allowing us to use the graphics and information on their website was invaluable to this project. The program is a part of the Department of Environmental Protection and the Division of Fish and Wildlife.
We acknowledge the help of Paul Tarlowe, biologist and division webmaster, and of Terry Colleen Terry of the ENSP for permissions to use materials.
New Jersey Outdoors magazine regularly features articles on all of N.J.'s wildlife species and has featured several articles on endangered species. ( including one on page 5 of the Winter 2000 issue about this web site!).
