California Department of Fish & Wildlife (CA DFW) publications

The quarterly California Fish and Wildlife Journal is an excellent resource for locating information on vertebrate wildlife.   NOTE the original agency name through 2019 was the California Department of Fish & Game - the journal reflected the same name until 2020.  This is the research publication for CA DFW.

The bi-monthly Outdoor California magazine is a general publication with selected information on wildlife. Noted as the Official California Fish, Wildlife and Habitat Magazine.  “Each issue offers California at its best—compelling stories on the state's native species and habitat, presented with page after page of beautiful photographs. All of this plus the Thin Green Line, which chronicles California's war against poachers! … Always filled with vivid color photography and in-depth articles featuring outdoor adventures and the status of the state's wondrous living resources.”
