Wildlife

Overview

Georgia is fortunate to have abundant wildlife. Birds, mammals, reptiles, and insects provide beauty and interest for those who take time to notice, and also are a source of recreation for many Georgians. Managing wildlife can be a challenge for experts and for homeowners. This is particularly true as population centers continue to expand and displace animals' native habitats. This page provides tips and information about coexisting peacefully with, protecting, and managing wildlife, wherever it is found.
