We are happy to announce the spotlighting of two Species of Interest each month, one New Jersey endangered and one New Jersey threatened, as part of a new education and outreach initiative. These species are important to New Jersey’s ecosystem and are protected by various regulations that are enforced by the Department of Environmental Protection. We hope you are excited to learn more about the world around us!
