 December 2015 - Illinois Furbearers!

Furbearers are mammals that are hunted or trapped, usually for their valuable fur. There are 14 species of furbearers in Illinois. In this month's Kids for Conservation® feature you can learn about furbearers and share with us your observations, photos, artwork and stories/poems related to furbearers!

Kids for Conservation® requests are intended for Illinois youth younger than 18 years of age. Educator resources are also posted on this page.
