Idaho Wildlife Federation: December Powerful Pint Partner

We are so excited that the Idaho Wildlife Federation is our Powerful Pint partner for December!



Meet The Idaho Wildlife Federation





The Idaho Wildlife Federation is a non-profit organization that advocates for the conservation of Idaho’s fish and wildlife, habitat, and outdoor heritage. Founded in 1936, the Idaho Wildlife Federation is Idaho’s oldest and largest statewide conservation organization promoting the conservation of Idaho’s wildlife heritage and legacy of sporting opportunities. IWF quickly became the state’s leading voice and influence to curtail decline and rebound game and wildlife populations. Two years after our founding, IWF successfully campaigned for the passage of the Citizen’s Initiative of 1938, establishing an independent commission to guide wildlife management by the North American Model. Through the shared goals of our affiliate clubs, we sought out to return habitat and wildlife through ecologic restoration, education, and policy change.



Goals



IDAHO IS DEFINED BY ITS FISH AND WILDLIFE


IWF works tirelessly on proactive efforts to enhance our fish and wildlife populations and hunting and fishing experiences, while defending against the increasing threats of disease, invasive species, pollution, and privatization.

ENSURING HUNTING OPPORTUNITY

Hunting is engrained into the fabric of our lives here in Idaho. Maintaining our world-class hunting legacy is a foundation of our effort. We work in several arenas – from the statehouse to on the ground projects – to sustain and enhance populations of big game, waterfowl, upland birds, and furbearing species.

INSURING DIVERSE FISHING OPPORTUNITY

Idaho’s lakes and rivers provide ample opportunity to catch and harvest a diversity of fish species. Warm water species like perch and bass team in our reservoirs. Trout flourish in our alpine lakes and gin-clear streams. Ancient sturgeon lurk in our rivers. Salmon and steelhead swim 900 miles upstream back to their Idaho birthplace. We work to implement policy reflecting Idahoans’ values for species diversity and abundance. Click here to find out more about our campaign to bring back Idaho’s salmon and steelhead.


MAKING WILDLIFE A NONPARTISAN ISSUE

Our political allegiances shouldn’t determine our prescriptions for wildlife management. There is no such thing as a Republican mule deer, a Democrat cutthroat trout, or an Independent black bear – they simply need space, healthy habitat, and the ability to migrate from summering to winter grounds. We unite diverse individuals and organizations who understand that the ultimate goal of our work is abundant and diverse fish and wildlife in the Gem State.

DISEASES AND INVASIVE SPECIES

New wildlife diseases and invasive species appear in Idaho all the time, threatening our fish and wildlife and challenging traditional approaches to wildlife management. IWF works hard to ensure that sportsman interests are at the table to help devise innovative, effective solutions to these issues that reduce the risks of disease while protecting wildlife and wild values.





IWF IS YOUR BIRD DOG IN GOVERNMENT

There are dozens of political arenas throughout state and federal government frameworks where fish, wildlife, and outdoor opportunities can be enhanced or put on the chopping block. We monitor and work with all individuals, agencies, processes and levels of government that can impact our outdoor heritage and let you know when and how you need to speak up.

IWF BRINGS YOUR VOICE TO THE IDAHO STATE LEGISLATURE

Each year during the Idaho legislative session, IWF acts as a voice for the sportsmen and women of Idaho. Rain or shine, whether the ducks are flying or the fish are biting, we are at the State House whenever a voice is needed for the wildlife, public lands, or hunters and anglers of Idaho.
