The NWTF’s Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative, a 10-year plan to conserve or enhance 4 million acres of wildlife habitat, recruit 1.5 million hunters and open access to 500,000 acres for hunting, has progressed at a blazing rate, surpassing all goals ahead of the deadline in the fall of 2022.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic hampered mission delivery efforts in 2020 and continued to affect boots-on-the-ground work and outreach and education events in 2021.
The NWTF surpassed its goal of conserving or enhancing 4 million acres two years ahead of schedule; its goal of 500,000 acres opened for hunting and recreational access was eclipsed in 2018; and the NWTF topped the benchmark of recruiting 1.5 million new or lapsed hunters in 2019.
The NWTF is committed to regaining its previous pace in the final year of the 10-year initiative while continuing to positively impact wild turkey habitat and educate future outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen.
