NHF&G Receives Two Donations

Department receives rescue & enforcement aids and winter gear.


CONCORD, NH - The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of NH has received two private, anonymous donations to benefit the Law Enforcement Division of the N.H. Fish and Game Department.

The first donation came from an experienced hiker who severely injured his leg while on a climb last spring and was assisted by members of the N.H. Fish and Game Law Enforcement Division Search and Rescue Team. The hiker's donation is earmarked for the purchase of additional safety rope, along with new cold weather stoves used to heat up fluids for those being rescued. "Thanks to you, I am on the mend. You guys are real professionals at what you do," the donor said in a note of thanks.

The Foundation was also the recipient of a donation from a private philanthropic fund to provide new holsters, revolver lights and new multi-layered jackets for all Conservation Officers. The donor of the equipment is a strong supporter of Fish and Game's Law Enforcement Division, and believes that Conservation Officers need to be supplied with up-to-date equipment.

New Hampshire Fish and Game, like many other wildlife agencies today, faces significant challenges as a result of reduced budgets and ever increasing costs. Equipment needs and requirements have to be prioritized which limits what can be purchased.

"As a result of these generous donations, and the continuing support of the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire, Conservation Officers will receive necessary safety equipment to be used during lifesaving search and rescue missions, new technology to enhance firearm defense in low-light conditions, and improved clothing for each officer in the field," said Colonel Kevin Jordan, Chief of the Law Enforcement Division. "We are very grateful for these generous donations."

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire is the official non-profit partner of the NH Fish and Game Department, and works to secure funds in support of the Department's critical education, conservation, wildlife and law enforcement programs important to preserving New Hampshire's quality of outdoor life for generations to come
