What We Do

Since 1945, North Carolina Wildlife Federation has worked for all wildlife and habitat bringing together citizens, outdoor enthusiasts, hunters and anglers, government and industry to protect North Carolina’s natural resources. From the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks, we are made up of people who value wildlife and wild places and the many ways to enjoy them. Engaging in the natural world is a cornerstone of NCWF history and philosophy. Supporting access to wild places and opportunities to enjoy them is a defining feature of our organization. We work collectively for the places and species that have no voice through our policy and protection work, research and education and direct hands-on conservation projects. Mission: To protect, conserve and restore North Carolina wildlife and habitat. Vision: Our stewardship will result in a North Carolina with bountiful and diverse wildlife, including all species of wild flora and fauna that is valued by its citizens and elected officials and sustainably managed for future generations.
