Our nation is facing problems that hunters and anglers have unique opportunities to help resolve.
Hunters and anglers are a core constituency to preserving our conservation legacy. Since 1936, the National Wildlife Federation has been at the forefront on issues concerning hunters and anglers, protecting and enhancing fish and wildlife habitat for all species. Whether it was passage of the Pittman Robertson Act in 1937 that still funds state fish and game agencies today, or the Wilderness Act of 1964 which has helped provide some of the premier hunting and fishing opportunities in the world, or the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts of the 1970s, or the "Open Fields" provision in the most recent Farm Bill that provides federal dollars to state agency for hunter access to private lands, or our continued work today, the National Wildlife Federation has teamed up with hunters and anglers to make a positive difference for wildlife habitat. What started as a cartoonist's dream continues as an organization that takes on the tough issues and has the resources and passion to push them over the finish line.
The National Wildlife Federation works with hunters and anglers on:
SPORTSMEN FOR RESPONSIBLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT
Sportsmen for Responsible Energy Development is a coalition of more than 500 businesses, organizations and individuals dedicated to conserving irreplaceable habitats so future generations can hunt and fish on America's public lands. SFRED is represented by everyday hunters and anglers who recognize the system is broken and have shouldered the responsibility of fixing it. SFRED works to reform the laws, regulations, and policies to ensure balance and respect for the traditions of the West, and fights to protect the rights of sportsmen to hunt and fish on public lands, now and for generations to come.
Vanishing Paradise is a coalition of more than 700 national, state, and local hunting and fishing organizations and businesses from all across the country that work to restore the Mississippi River Delta.VP works to reconnect the Mississippi River with its wetlands.
