Moving a Shared
Working Lands for Wildlife empowers America's farmers, ranchers and foresters to conserve wildlife through sustainable agricultural practices.
a shared vision
We keep working lands intact, productive and profitable
Private agricultural lands supply our nation's food and fiber. They also provide vital habitat for wildlife to roam, support rural communities, and safeguard our water and soils.
WLFW offers a new paradigm for conserving working landscapes through voluntary cooperation and incentives. This approach is tailor-made to meet the needs of focal species and individual landowners in target landscapes.

“As a rancher, you’re tied to the land and it means a lot to you. It’s important to take care of the land, to leave it better than you found it.”
