Profile:

  • Who We Are The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation is made up of hunters, fishers, trappers and others that are actively engaged in the outdoors. We deeply appreciate Wisconsin’s wildlife and recognize the importance of protecting fish and wildlife habitat. We understand that the long term sustainability of wildlife populations depends upon clean water, clean air and healthy forests and grasslands. The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation has been in existence since 1949. It has been a strong leader in conservation through its work with conservation clubs, citizen volunteers and policy makers. Together, we work to assure that healthy wildlife populations and their habitat will be available for our children and grandchildren. What We Do The Wisconsin Wildlife Federation has a dual mission to engage in conservation education and to advocate for sound conservation policy. The Federation’s education focus is on the protection of fish and wildlife and their habitat and in the teaching of skills including hunting, fishing, trapping and other outdoor recreational pursuits. Our efforts are largely focused on youth education. We operate the MacKenzie Environmental Center in Poynette, grant scholarships for future resource professionals at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, provide wildlife educational trunks to schools for K-12 education, send kids to summer conservation camps and implement the National Wildlife Federation’s Schoolyard and Backyard Habitat programs. We also are very active in promoting strong conservation policies before the Wisconsin Legislature and the Department of Natural Resources. The prime areas of conservation policy that we focus on are the protection of fish and wildlife habitat, the protection of public access to lands and water for outdoor recreation, assuring the right to hunt, fish and trap and the pursuit of other outdoor recreational activities and the furtherance of conservation education with an emphasis on youth education. We strongly believe that conservation policies should be scientifically, professionally and factually based, not politically based. We are the state affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation. Together we promote the protection and conservation of our natural resources on a national level with the US. Congress and federal agencies.
