Advancing Collaborative, Proactive, Science-Based Fish and Wildlife Conservation and Management Across the West

The Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies represents 24 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 wildlife for the use and benefit of all citizens, now and in the future.
