The South Carolina Wildlife Federation is the state’s oldest and largest membership conservation group. Formed in 1931 to find ways to reverse the trend of dwindling game and fish populations and to promote outdoor ethics and stronger conservation laws, the Federation is still a strong proponent of its original values in addition to resolving today’s pressing environmental issues. The Federation has over 4,400 individual, family and other memberships totaling over 8,000 individuals.

The South Carolina Wildlife Federation and the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) have a longtime partnership in wildlife conservation, working jointly on such projects as National Hunting and Fishing Day.

DNR protects and manages South Carolina’s natural resources by making wise and balanced decisions for the benefit of the state’s natural resources and its people.
