The Pennsylvania Game Commission, as an independent agency of the Commonwealth, has jurisdiction over and management responsibility for all wildlife in Pennsylvania. By definition, wildlife includes all wild birds and wild mammals, both game and nongame species.
The Commonwealth is home to 480 species of wild birds and wild mammals. There are 414 species of wild birds, including 285 that are regular denizens of the state, while the remaining 129 species are less frequent visitors. Wild mammals are represented currently by 66 species; although the list of recognized species includes some that are relatively scarce and a few with ranges that extend marginally into Pennsylvania.
These lists are dynamic and will be updated periodically to reflect changes in species presence.
