Profile:

  • The Indiana Wildlife Federation has played a part in conserving Indiana's natural resources for over half a century. As the nonprofit, grass-roots affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation* , IWF works to promote the wise use of our renewable resources through educational programs like National Wildlife Week and the Backyard Wildlife Habitat. The Indiana Wildlife Federation works with state agencies and other similar organizations to monitor what is happening in Indiana to our wildlife and their habitat, including our lakes and rivers, our air, and soil. We pay particular attention to legislation that affects Indiana's sportsmen and women, wildlife watchers, and conservationists, and of course our state's wildlife and wildlife habitat. As our organization grows, we are involved in national issues that affect Indiana's resources also. As the state affiliate for the National Wildlife Federation, we have a resource of program staff that work directly on national issues such as "Clean the Rain", which promotes reducing mercury contamination in our air and subsequently our water resources. As fish consumption advisories increase across the U.S., this is an important tool that the Indiana Wildlife Federation has to bring the awareness of mercury contamination in Indiana's lakes and rivers. The Indiana Wildlife Federation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors that represent all parts of the state. Our diverse membership consists of local conservation organizations, individuals, corporations, and businesses. People, like you, that care about our environment for future generations of Hoosiers, comprise the membership of the Indiana Wildlife Federation.
