NASHVILLE, Tenn. – For continuous support of the National Wild Turkey Federation’s mission, Marolina Outdoors, parent company for the brands HUK and Nomad, earned the NWTF’s Corporate Achievement Award.
Marolina Outdoors accepted the award during the 44th annual NWTF Convention and Sport Show.
“The NWTF sets the standard by which conservation organizations should be judged,” said Pete Angle, chief marketing officer for Marolina Outdoors. “Their efforts in habitat preservation, hunter recruitment and conservation education are paramount to the preservation of our hunting heritage. Marolina is honored to partner with NWTF and humbled to receive the Corporate Achievement Award. Our company is fully vested in the National Wild Turkey Federation's continued success and growth.”
Presented annually by the NWTF, the Corporate Achievement Award recognizes the outstanding work and dedication corporate partners have displayed in conserving wildlife and habitat and preserving our hunting heritage.
Through a co-branding agreement between the NWTF and Marolina’s brand Nomad, the partnership has raised over half a million dollars for the NWTF, and, in addition, Marolina Outdoors has contributed more than $150,000 worth of product donations for fundraising.
“We cannot thank Marolina Outdoors enough for its excellent and productive partnership through the Nomad brand,” NWTF CEO Becky Humphries said. “We look forward to a continued successful partnership and improving our shared interests in wildlife and habitat.”
About the National Wild Turkey Federation
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters' rights. Today, the NWTF is focused on the future of hunting and conservation through its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative – a charge that mobilizes science, fundraising and devoted volunteers to conserve or enhance more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruit at least 1.5 million hunters and open access to 500,000 acres for hunting.
