Welcome to T.E.R.N. We are a group of citizens who share a common interest in wildlife conservation who joined in 1992 to form T.E.R.N., Inc. -- The Environmental Resources Network. T.E.R.N. is a nonprofit, 501 (3)(c) corporation, and is the official "Friends Group" of the Nongame Conservation Section, Wildlife Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. T.E.R.N.'s primary mission is to aid in the financial support of the Nongame Conservation Program and its vital conservation projects. The Nongame Conservation Program relies primarily on private funding to carry out its mission.
