VA DGIF is now known as VA DWR

The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries has changed its name to the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources. VA “DGIF has been renamed the Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR). Our new name reflects the wide range of wildlife conservation responsibilities and opportunities that our agency has, from hunting and fishing to wildlife watching, public lands, boating, and outdoor recreation.”
