The National Military Fish and Wildlife Association (NMFWA) can trace its roots back to 1977, though it was officially chartered in 1983. We are a non-profit organization consisting of professional resource managers working to protect and manage wildlife and other natural resources on DoD lands. Through the publication of a quarterly Newsletter (Fish and Wildlife News [F.A.W.N.]), and the successful creation of an Annual Meeting and Training Workshop, members and supporters remain actively involved and engaged in issues of national and local importance. (Paragraph break) Through the hard work and dedication of our membership, we have become a leader in the conservation community. Our members have been involved in initiatives ranging from research on White-Nose Syndrome to the reauthorization of the Sikes Act. The work we do today is more relevant than ever before, as we are faced with significant challenges in policy, stewardship, and research; NMFWA is prepared to meet those challenges. We are able to leverage the combined expertise of our membership though our Working Group System, and continue to strive to do whatever we can to protect and conserve DoD lands.
