BOOTS ON THE GROUND: SAVING SPECIES, SUPPORTING THE MISSION
Filmed at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California and narrated by world-renowned photographer Joel Sartore of the National Geographic Photo Ark, this inspirational video tells a story of the unique balance between the vital military testing, training and operational mission and the extraordinary work, commitment, and dedication of the DoD to the conservation of at-risk species.
December 28, 2023, marks the 50th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, which presented the perfect opportunity to debut this inspiring video, highlighting the leading role DoD plays in the conservation of threatened and endangered species. This video was made possible by the DoD Legacy Resource Management Program, which is honored to collaborate with Joel Sartore, his team, and our Military partners.
WHO ARE WE

NMFWA Working Groups (WG) offer a tremendous way to network and communicate with other professional resource managers within and across service branches. Our WGs allow you to join specific distribution lists. One of the great things about NMFWA is that a resource manager has the ability to reach out to the WG chairs and gather professional information within a short time frame. If it’s a problem at one base there is a very good chance that it is a problem at another base and the collective knowledge and experience of NMFWA can offer real solutions.
Our board is composed of some of the best Conservation professionals in our industry. They range from herpetologists to evolutionary biologists. Together they comprise an amazing team.
If you are interested in serving on the Board or helping out let us know.
NMFWA is building a Mentoring Program to match up interested new members with some of our more “seasoned” members. It will also provide a venue to get advices from subject matter experts.
The goal of NMFWA's certification program is to assist the Department of Defense in meeting its Sikes Act requirement by recognizing trained natural resource professionals
