This renewal grant will 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 focus its efforts on securing fossil energy plans in three Western states that balance energy development with the protection of important habitat. 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.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Public Lands Program  
Fossil energy development on western public lands has greatly expanded in the last few years and now threatens important fish and wildlife habitat. Hunters and anglers have special credibility with the public and policymakers. This renewal grant would support the National Wildlife Federation’s program to engage hunters and anglers to ensure key wildlife and fish habitat remains off-limits to fossil-energy leasing and development and that leasing reforms adopted by the U.S. Department of the Interior are not weakened.
for support of the Michigan Sportsmen and Detroit Community Education on Renewable Energy Project  
The National Wildlife Federation's Great Lakes Office is perfectly situated to play a key role in building support for and curbing opposition to wind energy amongst skeptical sportsmen in Michigan. The state's largest and most influential conservation organizations--Ducks Unlimited and Michigan United Conservation Clubs--are concerned that state renewable energy policies will lead to increases in the number of wind turbines, which could disrupt bird migration patterns and lead to bird and bat deaths. NWF will work with prominent sports-men and -women leaders to educate these conservation groups and help address their concerns in order to build support for renewable energy and climate policies in the state. NWF also has a unique connection with the Detroit branch of the NAACP, and will use this connection to build support for clean energy and climate policies within the Detroit NAACP membership.
