Welcome to the New Brunswick Wildlife Trust Fund Website
The New Brunswick Wildlife Trust Fund has been established to fund a range of programs for the enhancement of New Brunswick’s wildlife, fish and their habitats. The main source of revenue is from a conservation fee on hunters, anglers and fur harvesters licences.
In 2014, a total of 124 projects were funded for a total of $976,565. In 2015, 118 projects were approved for a total of $929,565

The NBWTF also initiated programs such as the Youth Manual program. The Youth Manual Program is for youth between the ages of 10-16. They are eligible to receive the required manuals to take the Firearms Safety/Hunter Education Program, Bowhunter Course, or the Trappers Course free of charge. The manuals are available free of charge at the local DNRE office only.
We also encourage the associations to share their experience and results of their projects on our website.
