Pheasants Forever is dedicated to the conservation of pheasants, quail and other wildlife through habitat improvements, public awareness, education, and land management policies and programs.
In 1982, a group of pheasant hunters saw the connection between upland habitat loss and declining pheasant populations. An organization dedicated to upland wildlife habitat conservation was needed, and Pheasants Forever was formed.
Today, the combined impact of Pheasants Forever and its counterpart Quail Forever cannot be ignored. Since 1982, the organization has:
-Improved 19 million acres of critical wildlife habitat, benefiting wildlife, cleaning our waterways and safeguarding our soils.
-Secured more than 200,000 acres of upland habitat which are now all permanently open to public hunting and recreation.
-Completed more than 540,000 habitat projects and have spent more than $867 million on habitat and educational programs.
-Impacted over 300,000 youth annually through shooting sports, mentored hunts, youth habitat projects and outdoor education curricula.
However, more work must be done as our nation’s wildlife habitat faces monumental challenges in an ever-changing world. Native prairies have been plowed, cattail sloughs have burned to the ground, and drain tile crisscrosses our landscape. We need your support to put an end to these short-sighted land management practices which are poisoning our waterways, polluting our air, destroying our wildlife habitat, and threatening our upland hunting traditions. With a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator and an efficiency rating of over 90%, you can be certain that your dollars will be spent where they are needed most – on the ground. Every dollar you give to Pheasants Forever will be matched at a $3 to $1 ratio creating $4 for the benefit of wildlife habitat conservation.
