DEP’s Division of Fish and Wildlife E-mail Lists a Valuable Tool

March 8, 2005

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Division of Fish and Wildlife (Division) offers free subscriptions to electronic mailing lists covering a variety of wildlife and natural resource issues. Subscribers to this service, or listserv, receive periodic e-mail messages about conservation topics that most interest them. A total of eight lists are available to the public, and signing up is as easy as going to the DEP’s Division Web site.

The mailing lists provide the Division with a fast, cost-effective way to notify parties with an interest in a particular conservation subject. This is a great benefit to people as they are notified through targeted mailings as soon as information is available, and therefore don’t have to keep checking the Web site or other sources. It is also of great benefit to the Division of Fish and Wildlife to get accurate information out to its traditional constituent base as well as the general public.

Types of information posted on the listserv includes hunting and fishing season updates, wildlife management area acquisitions, public meeting notices, employment and volunteer opportunities, proposed regulatory changes, workshops for teachers and the general public, public events, grant opportunities and more. News releases sent out through the DEP are also posted, as are Web site changes and additions.

Division staff members regularly monitor the listserv program and assistance is available for those having difficulty subscribing or leaving a list. It is not possible to post messages to the list, but the Division does provide a "Contact Us" e-mail page on its Web site for those with questions.

“The lists have become a real asset to anyone interested in our state’s fish and wildlife,” said Division Director Martin McHugh. “They enable us to directly contact and inform interested parties about issues, events and news that concern fish and wildlife, and the habitat upon which they depend.” “I encourage anyone interested in New Jersey’s fish and wildlife to subscribe to the list or lists that interest them.”

The listserv program was launched in December of 2001 and has become extremely popular. The largest list is freshwater fishing with 11,614 subscribers followed by hunting (2,334), marine fisheries (2,040), general wildlife (1,710), fish and wildlife education (1,308), endangered species (1,259), Becoming an Outdoors Women (1,186) and shellfish (999).

To subscribe to one or more listserv, visit and click on the "button" for "E-mail Lists." Individuals may unsubscribe at any time.
