At Wildlife Mississippi, we measure success by the number of acres of habitat we
protect, restore or enhance and by the number of miles of streams we improve. A
healthy environment makes good economic sense for Mississippi and the nation.
To achieve the best results, our work focuses on four areas:
Conservation. We protect, restore and enhance fish and wildlife habitat directly
through a variety of projects on private and public lands.
Policy. We promote effective conservation policies, mainly by working with elected
officials and agencies to secure conservation incentives for landowners, robust
wetlands mitigation programs and funding for public lands.
Education. We educate Mississippians about effective conservation practices
they can employ on their lands, through our quarterly magazine,
a variety of landowner handbooks,
workshops and other means.
Outdoor Recreation. We help provide quality outdoor recreation experiences,
by supporting the creation and expansion of national wildlife refuges and other
public lands and by creating or enhancing public-use facilities such as boat ramps,
boardwalks and community lakes.
Our talented and dedicated staff work throughout the state,
from the Buttahatchie River in northeastern Mississippi, to the Delta, to the Blackland
Prairie, to the coast and beyond.

has existed. We have protected, restored or enhanced more than approximately 420,000
acres of lands and waters across the state. Read more in our

a better place to live, work and raise a family.
