Overview
Fossil energy development on Western public lands impacts more high-quality fish and wildlife habitat than any other single activity. Hunters and anglers are keenly aware of these impacts and are especially credible with the public and decision makers in the West. This renewal grant would support the National Wildlife Federation’s program to engage hunters and anglers in efforts to keep key wildlife and fish habitat off-limits to fossil-energy leasing and development. The Federation will educate its members on the effects of fossil energy on habitat, organize members to speak to administration officials that make polices affecting public land, and reach out to the press to document the concerns of its sportsmen members.

The National Wildlife Federation is America’s largest and oldest nonprofit wildlife conservation organization, with a mission of uniting all Americans to ensure wildlife thrives in a rapidly changing world. It works with sportsmen and women and other partners to build broad, regional-based coalitions to advance solutions that reduce greenhouse gases and criteria pollutants, help diversify and revitalize local economies, center equity and environmental justice in climate investments and conservation, and protect critical wildlife habitat across the United States toward a more just, equitable, and inclusive future for all Americans.

for equitable climate progress through economic recovery  
This grant will support the National Wildlife Federation and its work to build broad, regionally based coalitions in fossil fuel- and manufacturing-intensive communities to advance federal policies that will reduce greenhouse gases and criteria pollutants in the energy, industrial, and natural solution sectors, and to help diversify and revitalize local economies. By elevating the voices and ideas of frontline and fossil fuel-dependent communities to inform and educate others about the development of climate solutions, and by more strongly weaving environmental justice into climate investments, the Federation will work to build a more just, equitable, and inclusive future for all Americans.
