National Wildlife Week

National Wildlife Week

Join us April 6-10 in our annual celebration of National Wildlife Week!

The rich history of National Wildlife Week dates all the way back to its first celebration in 1938. As our longest-running education program, National Wildlife Week connects budding conservationists of all ages to the awesome wonders of wildlife. Now more than ever, these connections serve as a vital component to recovering our nation’s most vulnerable wildlife.

For people across the nation, this week is a chance to learn more about the incredible animals native to North America, their habitats, and how we can help them thrive.

Where We Work

More than one-third of U.S. fish and wildlife species are at risk of extinction in the coming decades. We're on the ground in seven regions across the country, collaborating with 52 state and territory affiliates to reverse the crisis and ensure wildlife thrive.
