The National Wild Turkey Federation distributed more than $143,000 in June 2009 as it continues to advance its mission of benefiting wildlife conservation and protecting hunting traditions, according to a recent release by the organization. The monies are distributed to states and programs through the NWTF Hunting Heritage Super Fund.
The Hunting Heritage Super Fund supports the NWTF's multitude of conservation and education programs with money raised from NWTF Hunting Heritage Banquets, donated by corporate sponsors and given to support wildlife conservation.
To date, the NWTF and its partners have spent more than $286 million upholding hunting traditions and conserving nearly 14 million acres of wildlife habitat. Some of the Federation's Hunting Heritage Super Fund projects include improving wildlife habitat, supporting hunter education and providing opportunities for women, youth and people with disabilities to experience outdoor fun through outreach programs.
