Wildlife

The Wildlife Division of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe’s Natural Resources Department is responsible for protecting and preserving the wildlife resources throughout the aboriginal lands of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe. It is important that the wildlife resources that the Coeur d’Alene people are dependent upon for subsistence, religious, cultural, and recreational purposes are perpetuated for future generations. Protection and enhancement of wildlife habitats to support the needs of various wildlife species as well as Tribal members is the primary strategy employed. Other activities undertaken by the Wildlife Division include species population inventory, monitoring and management, incident management, administration and enforcement of Tribal hunting programs (both on and off Reservation), publication and distribution of Tribal regulations, and the promotion of wildlife interests in all land management activities on the Reservation.
