National Wildlife Federation


Founded in 1936, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) has emerged as the nation's premier grassroots conservation and education organization, with over four million members and supporters and 48 state affiliate organizations.


To inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children’s future.


NWF is tackling global warming as the single most urgent challenge to protecting wildlife. Global warming poses a wide range of threats to public health, fish and wildlife resources, and the wild places that define America’s unique landscapes. In response to these threats, NWF is working to emphasize responsible solutions to alleviate the impact of global warming on wildlife and the environment. NWF is committed to protecting and restoring habitats that are vital to sustaining diverse wildlife populations. This goal includes preserving wild places, restoring America’s great waters and protecting the wildlife that depend on these habitats for their survival.

Through volunteer and education programs, NWF is also dedicated to connecting people with nature and wildlife every day. This is especially important for children, who with Internet, television and electronic games are less likely than they were a generation ago to spend their free time outside connecting with nature. NWF is committed to countering this nature deficit through its One Green Hour program which encourages adult caregivers to help children spend an average of one hour per day in outdoor spaces.


For more than 70 years, National Wildlife Federation has worked with individuals, educators, businesses and community groups to involve them in our mission to save the wild. As the nation’s largest non-profit, environmental education and advocacy organization, NWF seeks to bring people from diverse walks of life together to protect our country’s natural resources. Through education and action, we are leading the nation’s conservation movement to restore America’s wildlife.
