Water for Wildlife is a conservation program designed to benefit our nation’s wildlife. The initial emphasis focused on antelope preservation and management through the development of supplemental water resources in selected areas where both the habitat and wildlife are being impaired by lack of this vital resource.
The State Game and Fish Departments and other public agencies cooperate jointly with Water For Wildlife in the creation and development of this unique conservation program.
Antelope herds, as well as other big game animals, are dependent on their habitat for water, feed, and cover. This conservation project provides additional water sources for wildlife. With the help of generous donations, over 450 water facilities have already been developed and maintained in eleven states. In addition, the future for all non-game animals, songbirds, raptors and waterfowl, as well as, domestic livestock will be assured. The goal of Water for Wildlife is to benefit our wildlife and environment in arid regions of the West while creating an awareness for the public and private segments of our society.
The Mzuri Wildlife Foundation President Kevin Destruel stated: “We have been longtime supporters of the excellent work Water for Wildlife does promoting wildlife conservation in the western states. We are proud to continue our support of this worthy program.”
