    Walmart and NFWF created Acres for America in 2005 to conserve lands of national significance, protect critical fish and wildlife habitat and benefit people and local economies. The Acres for America program has far surpassed Walmart’s initial goal of permanently conserving at least one acre of priority wildlife habitat for every acre developed for the company’s facilities. Since its inception, Acres for America has funded 60 projects in 31 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
