Focus Areas

Taking action for wildlife has never been more important. Today our nation faces a myriad of issues that threaten to impact our wildlife and our environment for centuries to come. The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund’s critical areas of focus include:


Wildlife Conservation

To ensure wildlife thrive in the face of 21st-century challenges, we call for measures to recover America’s declining wildlife populations and protect species at risk.

Healthy environments support healthy wildlife. Twenty-first century threats to our environment—including climate inequity and a warming climate—threaten wildlife and people alike.



We’re advocating for key legislation and other actions to safeguard and restore waterways and clean water from the devastating effects of pollution, climate change, and other threats.


Our Lands

Our nation’s diverse and wondrous natural lands provide the basis for biodiversity and healthy communities. We’re creating bold, future-focused strategies for these important spaces to thrive.



The American landscape is an intricate patchwork of lands and waters that give our wildlife a home. We’re protecting, restoring, and connecting these vital habitats.

People & Justice

Our work ensures the decisions elected officials make connect us all with wildlife and advance environmental justice. We provide our supporters with tools to take action as we target important legislation, votes, and elections to help hold elected officials on both sides of the aisle accountable for their positions.
