The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has only one program that focuses on non-game wildlife and rare and endangered species. 'Non-game species' make up the vast majority in wildlife in Indiana. Most of the money raised for the fund last year came from contributions by taxpayers who chose to donate part of their refund on their annual state income tax return. Those donations are then matched by federal grants. The bald eagle reintroduction has been so successful that the DNR quit doing its annual surveys.
