Living with Wildlife

Warmer temperatures bring increased wildlife activity and sometimes those animals find their way to our homes or property. They may be intentionally fed, watered and welcomed there in the case of things like bird feeders and baths, but they can also be unwanted visitors.

Learn more about how you can keep wildlife and people safe.

Turn your camping trip into a fun educational trip

We all look forward to the warmer weather and longer days of summer to spend more time outdoors. Although camping can be very relaxing and a much-needed break for our brain, it can also be a great time to train our brain and learn about wildlife. There are signs of wildlife everywhere; you have to prepare yourself for what to look for.

Meet Joanna Hatt - #TeamNM GameandFish

Managing New Mexico’s wildlife is a long-term, complex endeavor. Biologists must work with other New Mexico agencies, other states, non-profit, industry and the public. There are many different views on projects that need to be implemented, methods to implementing those projects, priorities and many more intricacies that may go unnoticed.

For the past four years, Joanna Hatt has embraced those challenges focusing on species that may go unnoticed by many people.
