Issues & Advocacy
Prevent Litter, Preserve the Land We Love
Tennessee has a pollution problem. Litter affects wildlife, agriculture, recreation, and much more—all of which lead to negative impacts on Tennessee’s economy, health, and wild places. It’s time for a change that addresses the root of the problem.
Invasive Carp Threaten Tennessee’s Native Fish
Invasive carp have taken over the Mississippi River system—and have moved aggressively into the Tennessee and Cumberland River systems.
Reducing River Overcrowding
Water is a public resource utilized by anglers, boaters, canoers and kayakers, and other recreationists. With a significant increase of recreational use in recent years, overcrowding on Tennessee’s rivers has reached a critical level and solutions are needed so we can all enjoy this natural resource.

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.
