Through the development of the District’s WAP document, the DC Fisheries and Wildlife Division has gathered a wealth of information about the District’s wildlife resources. Although we have learned a lot about the wildlife in the District, it is very clear that there is so much more we need to learn. While the District is a very small geographic area, only 69 square miles, a tremendous amount of preliminary information that tells us that the District is home to over 500 species of birds, fish, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Furthermore, it is too early to even estimate a number for invertebrates, for which we have only scratched the surface on what we believe to be in the thousands. While all of these species of wildlife in the District need some degree of conservation, for the purpose of this WAP, we have focused on those of greatest conservation need.
