Our Mission

Working Together for Conservation

The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation was formed in 2018 to encourage private support to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. The Foundation’s vision is to enable all hunters, anglers and wildlife enthusiasts to actively enjoy our state’s wildlife and wild spaces.

Our Current Projects

The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation will work directly with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation to ensure donation funds are being directed specifically toward conservation enhancement projects that are important to the stakeholder and sportsmen donators, like these:

The state’s four fish hatcheries have been in use for many decades and are in need of some TLC, so they can continue to produce fish for future anglers to enjoy catching.
