STATE AGENCIES


This page lists all known state agencies that regulate wild and exotic animals in some way. 

It includes addresses, general board information including meeting frequency, and what each agency regulates. 

NOTE: When it comes agriculture or livestock agencies, sometimes they will jointly regulate import with the natural resources/fish and game agency and other times they can only regulate import of animals not regulated by that agency.
