WWF advocates for wise environmental stewardship, abundant resources, funding to perpetuate fish, wildlife and habitat, and access to our public lands for hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts.
Our work is guided by three policy priorities:
1. Fish, wildlife, and habitat health
2. Public land access
3. Natural resource public education
Our 2020 Initiatives
Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition
We have been an active member of the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition (WWRC) since its formation in 1989. This coalition worked with our state legislature during the design and implementation of the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP). Over the past 29 years, the WWRP has provided more than one billion dollars for habitat preservation and outdoor recreation projects in Washington state.
Support for the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife
The Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) has a broad mission to preserve, protect, and perpetuate fish and wildlife while providing sustainable hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation opportunities. Yet the Department is chronically underfunded and struggles to adequately serve the diverse interests of wildlife and people in Washington.
WWF is collaborating with WDFW and other entities to advocate for on-going conservation programs focused on protecting healthy wildlife and habitat.
Steps We Take To Advocate
