Protecting, conserving and restoring North Carolina wildlife and habitat since 1945.

Since 1945, North Carolina Wildlife Federation has worked for all wildlife and habitat, bringing together citizens, outdoor enthusiasts, hunters and anglers, government and industry to protect North Carolina’s natural resources. From the Great Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks, our organization is made up of people who value wildlife and wild places and the many ways to enjoy them.
