MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is urging Vermonters to donate to the Non-game Wildlife Fund via their state tax returns.

The non-game fund is used to help conserve species such as bald eagles, lynx, and turtles. It has also helped fund research into white nose syndrome, the disease that has decimated many of the state’s bat species.

The donations, which can be made on line 29a of the state tax form, are matched by federal funds, meaning that a $50 donation brings in more than $100 to wildlife conservation in Vermont.

The department’s Steve Parren says the nongame fund has been responsible for some of the great conservation success stories in Vermont.
