Celebrating Common Sense Conservation in
Indiana Since 1938
(see videos below)
The Indiana Wildlife Federation has played a part in conserving Indiana's natural resources
for over half a century. As the nonprofit, grass-roots affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation ,
IWF works to promote the wise use of our renewable resources through educational programs
like National Wildlife Week and the Backyard Wildlife Habitat.
The Indiana Wildlife Federation works with State Agencies
and other similar organizations to
monitor Indiana's wildlife and habitats, including Hoosier lakes and rivers, air, and soil. We pay
particular attention to legislation that affects Indiana's sportsmen and women, wildlife
watchers, and conservationists, and of course our state's wildlife and wildlife habitat.
As our organization grows, we are involved in national issues that affect Indiana's resources, too.
As the state affiliate for the National Wildlife Federation, we utilize the resource of program staff
that works directly on national issues such as "Clean the Rain,” which promotes reducing mercury
contamination in our air and subsequently our water resources. As fish consumption
advisories increase across the U.S., this campaign serves as an important tool for the
Indiana Wildlife Federation to increase awareness about mercury contamination in Indiana's
lakes and rivers.
The Indiana Wildlife Federation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors representing all
parts of the state. Our diverse membership consists of local conservation organizations,
individuals, corporations, and businesses. People like you, who care about our environment
for future generations of Hoosiers, comprise the membership of the Indiana Wildlife Federation.
