This year, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation marks a number of milestones: 40 years of conservation, more than 22,400 projects supported, $10 billion in conservation impact on the ground and 11.5 million acres of wildlife habitat restored, enhanced or conserved.

From monarch butterflies to manatees, and from mussels to moose, the thousands of projects made possible through NFWF funding have provided vital support to native species and the habitats they depend on for their very survival. To learn more and to see some of the amazing results of 40 years of NFWF, check out our storymap highlighting this work.
