• Representing Western Fish and
    Wildlife Agencies Since 1922

    The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies represents 23 states and Canadian provinces,
    an area covering nearly 3.7 million square miles of some of North America's most wild and scenic
    country. WAFWA's reach encompasses more than 40 percent of North America, including two-thirds
    of the United States. WAFWA supports sound resource management and building partnerships at all
    levels to conserve native wildlife for the use and benefit of all citizens, now and in the future.
