Nevada Department of Wildlife
The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) is the state agency responsible for the restoration and management of fish and wildlife resources, and the promotion of boating safety on Nevada’s waters. NDOW is organized into seven divisions (law enforcement, game, fisheries, conservation and education, habitat, wildlife diversity, and operations division) that develop programs and projects, and three regions (eastern, southern and western) that implement these programs.
In addition, NDOW coordinates agency planning activities, legislation, and support operations by assigning senior management level personnel to coordinate these efforts. The Department is led by a governor-appointed Director, who also serves as the Secretary of the Wildlife Commission.
