The Kansas Wildlife Federation, founded in 1950, is a grassroots organization of hunters, anglers and concerned wildlife conservationists dedicated to the sustainable use, conservation, appreciation, and the restoration of our state’s wildlife and natural environment. We approach this mission primarily from the perspective of hunting and fishing, which are important traditions in Kansas. Over 425,000 hunters and anglers spend more than $600 million in the state each year. The Kansas Wildlife Federation chapter was rebuilt in 2018 with help from our partners within our affiliated parent organization, National Wildlife Federation. Learn more about specific members of the KWF Board working for you on our About The Team page.

The Kansas Wildlife Federation works to preserve endangered species and species in need of conservation like the monarch butterfly pictured above. This individual was carefully tagged with a sticker and monitored as it migrated to Mexico.
