Agencies & Organizations

Project WILD encourages educators and students to contact a range of organizations in order to gather additional information on wildlife and natural resources. It is recommended that requests be as specific as possible, mailed on behalf of a class rather than each individual student, and sent with a stamped self-addressed envelope for return of requested materials.

 

State Wildlife Agencies

State Wildlife Agencies are a super resource on all things WILD. As leaders in wildlife education in their state, these agencies possess a great deal of valuable information. Your Project WILD State Coordinator has access to just about everything on wildlife and wildlife education in your state. To explore the possibilities, check out the Project WILD Coordinator page.

 

National Wildlife Federation (NWF) Affiliates
