National Wildlife Federation focuses its conservation and education work in three major areas that will have the biggest impact on the future of America's wildlife:
  • Seeking solutions to global warming which poses a major threat to the nation’s wildlife
  • Protecting and restoring wildlife habitat, especially habitats that provide a home for threatened and endangered species
  • Connecting children to nature for a nation of happier, healthier kids. These connections in early life will teach children to appreciate and respect the natural world so they can be good conservation stewards in the future.
