About Us

Our wildlife is our legacy and the conservation of this precious resource is our gift to the future.

In 1946, a small group of sportsmen, worried about the future of Mississippi’s wildlife, got together to discuss their concerns. They believed that citizens could influence how our lands, wildlife, coasts and rivers are managed, and they wanted to be a part of the decisions being made.

Now, over 70 years later, the Mississippi Wildlife Federation is the largest network of conservationists in the state. We are a federation of individuals, businesses and organizations committed to natural resource conservation, environmental quality, hunting, fishing and other outdoor recreation in Mississippi. We are a citizen’s organization, not a state or federal agency.

Our mission is to conserve Mississippi’s natural resources and protect our wildlife legacy. You can help us continue our record of accomplishment by joining the thousands of Mississippians who care about wildlife in Mississippi.
