Partnering with federal programs is an effective way to conserve millions of acres of wildlife habitat.  Federal programs have provided millions of dollars while fostering thousands of partnerships to implement conservation projects throughout North America.  DU’s office in Washington D.C. exists to promote these programs and other wildlife-friendly legislation.  In an effort to maintain and bolster wildlife-friendly programs, our office works with federal agencies such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, as well as the White House, members of Congress and other conservation organizations.
