RESTON, VA (April 25, 2019) — The National Wildlife Federation has made critical progress in implementing its strategic plan and undertaking critical organizational steps to become an even more effective, resilient, diverse, inclusive and equitable conservation organization. The organization’s progress, outlined in its Action Report 2018: Advancing a Common Agenda for Wildlife, highlights work on each of the National Wildlife Federation’s 13 goals as well as its Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice principles.
“The National Wildlife Federation has worked tirelessly to transform our strategic plan from mere words on a page into collaborative action on the ground, building on our existing body of work, and initiating bold new efforts to align the scale of our conservation work with the challenges confronting wildlife, habitats and people,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “At a time when some doubt whether our nation still has the ability to enact solutions of the magnitude of the problems we face, the National Wildlife Federation is proving that we can rise to meet these challenges and achieve conservation victories in any political environment.
“The Action Report summarizes our progress in year-one of the strategic plan and underscores how the National Wildlife Federation is evolving as an organization to best position itself for increasing its impact and achieving its ambitious vision for conservation. This includes changes designed to make the Federation an even more effective, resilient, equitable and collaborative organization.”
