Wild turkeys pose a strike risk for aircraft. So the NWTF partnered with NC Wildlife and the USDA to trap turkeys in Eastern North Carolina for restoration efforts in Eastern Texas.
The NWTF has teamed up with several outdoor industry heavy-hitters to positively impact its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative and work to reverse the decline in hunting participation. Learn about the role of corporate sponsors and how more outdoor industry companies can become involved.
Last year we had an incredible year at the NWTF. It was our 45th year;our sapphire year. We conserved more acreage than planned, but we also broke 20 million acres conserved, since the NWTF began tracking this figure in the mid 80s.
“It was an incredible feat that everybody worked hard to achieve, and I am very proud to be a part of this organization that worked so hard to Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt.” – Becky Humphries, NWTF CEO
Conservation organizations like RMEF, DU and PF/QF are not competitors of the NWTF, they are partners of the NWTF. Countless conservation projects rely on the collaborative efforts of other NGOs. Even chapter outreach programs would not be possible without the help of the volunteers from other conservation organizations.
Seeing and hearing a wild turkey in the woods is one of the most memorable outdoor experiences you can have. They have become a familiar sight, but that wasn’t the case 100 years ago.
