LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is reminding residents that part of their tax refund can go toward wildlife and habitat conservation.

The commission says the tax check-off on 2015 state income tax forms allows individuals to donate all or a part of their tax refund to the Wildlife Conservation Fund.

Kristal Stoner, the commission’s wildlife diversity program manager, says the check-off is one of the main sources of state funding that protects and helps manage more than 95 percent of nongame fish and wildlife species in the state.

The check-off is on Line 42 of Nebraska state income tax forms. Donations can also be made online or by mail, to the Wildlife Conservation Fund in Lincoln.
