Since 1990, the California Wildlife Foundation (CWF) has worked to protect the state’s wildlife species. The foundation supports programs of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and its partners, manages funds designated to strengthen the stewardship efforts and long-term management of publicly-held wildlife areas and reserves, facilitates the development of regional land management plans, practices sound land use and science in its conservation and restoration projects, and promotes the judicious and ethical use of California’s wild resources through educational and recreational activities that encourage people to appreciate, respect and perpetuate the state’s rich diversity of plant and animal life.
