Welcome to the wide world of Natural Resources!

Whether your interests are in bird watching, small or large mammals, endangered species, hunting and sport fishing, plant-animal interactions, the ecology or environmental quality of habitats, or the conservation and management of our water and terrestrial resources, we have a home for you.

It is the mission of the Natural Resource Management Department at South Dakota State University to advocate for the management and study of a remarkable and diverse array of animals and plants. This is because we value these animals and plants and their associated habitats across fragmented landscapes around the globe, and recognize the critical roles these animals and plants occupy in sustaining the diversity and health of our natural world.
