Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt.

Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. is the NWTF’s 10-year initiative to:

1. Conserve or enhance 4 million acres of critical wildlife habitat

We’re bringing focus to our conservation delivery by identifying areas of habitat that provide the most positive impact for wildlife. Check out the America’s Big Six page

2. Recruit 1.5 million hunters

We’re securing the future of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation by increasing the number of hunters, who pay for 80 percent of wildlife conservation through excise taxes on guns, ammunition and more. Learn more about our Hunting Heritage Programs. 

3. Open access to 500,000 additional acres for hunting

Because lack of access to hunting lands is a main reason people stop hunting, we’re ensuring there’s opportunity for everyone to find a place to go. Take a look at our Find a Place to Hunt section.  


The NWTF is leading the effort to solve this problem. We will see to it that the entire industry, our community, becomes part of the solution. This is bigger than any one organization, and it is time we tackled this challenge together.
