Through education and involvement, the American Wildlife
Foundation is dedicated to teaching people to care for and
about the environment. The interests of AWF
are worldwide; its focus is on the local communities. We
believe that people are most strongly influenced by what they
can see, hear, and experience. AWF
strives to teach people that our world’s most valuable
treasures are in their hands; that every day actions, even
ones that seem small, actually can make a difference. AWF
fosters grand scale conservation as it is done best, one
person at a time.
As resources allow, AWF provides
the following programs and services:
Shelters, and provides veterinary and
rehabilitation care to wildlife
Informs and educates people about wild
animals and ecosystem conservation.
Promotes research and continuing
education for animal care and conservation
Assists and supports local, national and
international organizations dedicated to promoting
wildlife care and conservation.
