Where does your Money go?
Since 1984, tax deductible donations to the Nebraska Wildlife Conservation
Fund have helped the thousands of species that call Nebraska home. Wildlife
Conservation Fund projects help those species considered non-game, or those
that are not hunted or fished. Donated dollars have big impact, since
Wildlife Conservation Fund dollars are matched with other grants, so that
a dollar donated becomes 4 dollars for helping wildlife. The Wildlife Conservation
Fund’s makes many types of projects possible, including:
- Improving habitat across Nebraska for our at-risk species while keeping
common species common by funding projects such as prairie restorations and
invasive species removal.
- Preventing future endangered species listings by funding
reintroduction projects such as the now thriving peregrine falcon, by funding
research to ensure efficient conservation such as a river
otter population and genetic study and
curlew habitat study.
- Education Projects such as Project
BEAK (Bird Education Awareness for Kids)
that targets grade school children about ecological principles such as habitat,
Nebraska’s birds and adaptation.
- Connecting Wildlife and Nebraskans through projects like wildcams for the
falcon, kestrel and least
