Conservation Policy

Issues and Advocacy

Strong habitats and wildlife populations do not happen by accident. They require robust, common-sense policies supporting conservation and active, science-backed management. Public voices that raise concerns and hold lawmakers and agencies accountable are the backbone of this work.

Habitat Restoration and Conservation

Creating Thriving Landscapes

Healthy habitats are necessary for fish and wildlife populations to thrive. Nearly 90 percent of land in Tennessee is privately owned, meaning it’s up to private landowners to help maintain healthy populations of native plants and wildlife. Tennessee Wildlife Federation partners with private landowners and public agencies to do just that, restore and conserve critical habitats throughout Tennessee.

Give Back By Hunting

Tennessee Wildlife Federation’s Hunters for the Hungry program feeds Tennesseans in need by providing hunger relief organizations, such as food banks and soup kitchens, with venison donated by generous deer hunters. It allows hunters to do what they love, donate venison, and give back to their communities.

Engage with nature while supporting conservation. Sportsmen and women play a vital role in fish and wildlife conservation in Tennessee. Tennessee Wildlife Federation enthusiastically works to recruit and develop the next generation of hunters, anglers, and conservationists of all ages to keep the movement strong and effective.
Scholastic Clay Target Program

Introduce Youth to Sporting and Conservation

Tennessee Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) provides youth ages 9 through the 12th grade and college an opportunity to participate in the three main shotgun disciplines—trap, skeet, and sporting clays—with peers from across the state. Tennessee SCTP is designed to teach the importance of safe firearm handling, responsibility, leadership, teamwork, and promote healthy competition.
