Energy for Wildlife

The NWTF's Energy for Wildlife program helps the utility industry manage millions of miles of rights-of-way and other properties that could potentially provide ideal habitat for a number of wildlife species.

The program helps . . .


  • Develop credibility for vegetation/wildlife management programs
  • Gain technical assistance with vegetation and wildlife issues
  • Receive assistance with state and federal lands issues

Members and Volunteers:

  • Work toward increasing public hunting access
  • Gain corporate cooperation with private lands management
  • Receive assistance on technical vegetation/forestry/wildlife management problems
  • Assist with other cooperative programs including Farm Bill programs

Managing these properties provides great habitat for wild turkeys. Several other wildlife species currently at risk from loss of open habitat also benefit from the program.

The Energy for Wildlife staff works directly with utility companies to integrate wildlife management activities into their land management programs. When participating companies have implemented the wildlife component of their management plans, they will receive a "seal of approval" from the NWTF for their efforts.
