1936 - 2006: NWF Celebrates 70 Years of Protecting America's Wildlife…and Is Still Going Strong!

March 2006
Guardians of the Wild: Wildlife Report;Spring2006, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p1
The article focuses on the celebration of 70 years of National Wildlife Federation (NWF), for protecting America's wildlife. The organization thanks its steadfast supporters--including members of the Guardians of the Wild--for keeping their promise to protect wildlife for the children's future. NWF has led the fight to bring back dozens of species from the brink of extinction--to restore the purity of America's waters--and to recover wetlands that shelter so much of the wildlife. Some of the achievements of NWF include restoring gray wolves to their ancestral habitat in Yellowstone National Park and central Idaho, being were instrumental in banning chemicals, such as DDT, that were threatening the very survival of the national bird, the bald eagle, and helping in passing the original Endangered Species Act more than 30 years ago. This bedrock law has been instrumental in helping NWF save hundreds of endangered and threatened species like bald eagles, grizzly bears, Florida manatees and gray wolves.
