The value of American wildlife spans economic, ecological, and spiritual realms. 野生动物通过户外娱乐创造就业机会, 维持食物和水的供应, 并帮助澳门金沙总站与自然世界建立有意义的联系. 不幸的是, over the last century many of our wildlife species have seriously declined due to rapid and large-scale changes to their habitats and ecosystems. We’re working to grow wildlife populations by transforming the way we approach wildlife conservation.
在创始人丁达林的领导下, the 国家野生动物联盟’s first priority was securing the passage of an act that supported the North American Model of 野生动物保护, pairing dedicated resources and sound scientific wildlife management. This initial victory—the 1937 Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act (also called the Pittman-Robertson Act)—led to the recovery of dozens of birds and mammals and propelled our work with countless conservation partners in the following decades to secure funding for sportfish, 保护栖息地和濒危物种, 改善澳门金沙总站的水质, soil, and air.
这种保护模式取得了巨大的成功, 但许多其他物种正在遭受衰退. Today the 国家野生动物联盟 and its affiliates are taking a series of critical and timely steps to not only reverse the decline of American wildlife populations, 但要在未来30年里显著增加它们的数量. 在一个快速变化的时代, these actions are vital to helping fish and wildlife and their habitats adapt to major shifts.

Because it is more effective to conserve species before they become endangered, 国家野生动物联盟 also works to promote the use of state wildlife action plans, 哪些是州保护行动的蓝图. Each plan identifies “Species of Greatest Conservation Need” to help set conservation priorities, 澳门金沙总站一直在帮助制定名单 区域重点物种 to encourage cross-state collaboration and regional conservation action.
澳门金沙总站的 花园对野生动物™ program helps people restore habitat and wildlife populations to our cities, towns, 和社区. Since 1973, the program has been educating and empowering people to turn their own small piece of the Earth—their yards and gardens—into thriving habitat for birds, 蝴蝶, 和其他野生动物. 这样做, the Garden for Wildlife program helps wildlife and gives people a daily connection to the natural world.
