Manage Delta Wildlife Field Programs and Provide Technical Assistance to Landowners and Land Managers on Wildlife Issues

Wetland Habitat Restoration, Bottomland Hardwood Reforestation, Wildlife Habitat Management, and Wildlife Management

Delta Wildlife strives to conserve, enhance, and restore native wildlife habitats, wildlife populations, and the natural resources of the Delta and part-Delta counties of Northwest Mississippi. The organization accomplishes this mission through two primary means:

  1. By developing, implementing, and monitoring science based projects and programs that address wildlife, wildlife habitat, and natural resource concerns in the region.
  2. By arming children, sportsmen, land managers, landowners, and the general public with information that will help them make better decisions as conservationists, hunters, fishermen, or wildlife managers.

Delta Wildlife was founded to serve the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta and adjacent Loess Bluffs of Northwest Mississippi because the region is set apart from the rest of the state by its soils, topography, habitats, land use, and hydrology. For this reason, the organization’s by-laws restrict the organization from implementing projects outside of the service area. However, Delta Wildlife does provide technical assistance and informational resources to members who own land or reside outside of the organization’s operating area.
