Forests and Grasslands
North America’s forests and grasslands provide refuge for thousands of species, many of which are unique to the continent. As our open lands become increasingly fragmented, lost or degraded, high-quality habitat is vanishing, and many populations of wildlife are declining.
NFWF focuses on issues that are critical to birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians in these areas, to ensure that these populations survive.
NFWF supports results-oriented projects for forest and grassland species, from songbirds to the pronghorn. We work with partners across the country to:
restore degraded habitat
improve stewardship on private ranching forest and agricultural lands
expand conservation areas through easements and acquisitions, and
address barriers to wildlife movement.
