Programs

NWF appreciates the support of the ROAR partnership with Animal Planet. Funds raised through ROAR help NWF further its mission to protect wildlife for our children's future. Programs include: Adopt-a-Wildlife-Acre: This program solves serious conflict between wildlife and livestock in areas of dangerous overlap in the Yellowstone National Park area. We accomplish this by offsetting local ranchers' expenses to retire vulnerable grazing allotments and relocate their livestock to safer lands. Be Out There: National Wildlife Federation's Be Out There program is a national movement to connect American families to the outdoors and help them raise happier, healthier children with a life-long love of nature. The vision of Be Out There is to create a world where all children have the opportunity to engage with nature everyday. Great American Backyard Campout: Through its Be Out There campaign, NWF encourages people to participate in the Great American Backyard Campout on the 4th Saturday in June. In 2012, over 180,000 people camped out in backyards or campgrounds across the country. Through this event, NWF raises awareness for the benefits of camping out to connect with nature. Trees for Wildlife: Trees for Wildlife is an education program of NWF that works with community groups and schools in underserved communities to plant trees, with a focus on education for children. NWF provides participants in the program with educational activities to teach them about trees and their importance to people and wildlife. NWF ensures the care of each tree during its critical first year of growth. This initiative aims to educate and prepare a generation of environmental stewards, expand the world inventory of trees and to protect and improve natural resources.
