Uniting all Americans to ensure wildlife thrive in a rapidly changing world.
We believe America's experience with cherished landscapes and wildlife has helped define and shape our national character and identity for generations. Protecting natural resources is a cause that has long united Americans who are hunters, anglers, hikers, birders, wildlife watchers, boaters, climbers, campers, cyclists, gardeners, farmers, forest stewards, and other outdoor enthusiasts. This nonpartisan conservation ethic represents a sacred duty and obligation to protect and build upon our conservation heritage for the sake of wildlife, ourselves, our neighbors, and--most of all--for future generations.
What We Do
The Great Lakes Regional Center (GLRC) of the National Wildlife Federation works on critical national and regional water resource issues with a particular focus on protecting and restoring our Great Lakes. Protecting the Great Lakes also means protecting the health and quality of the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems in the Great Lakes basin, as well as the human communities that depend upon them.
