About

RubyThroatedHummingbirdHead_FrancescoVeronesi_219x219Thank you for visiting Wildlife Promise – the blogging home of the National Wildlife Federation.

Wildlife Promise is an online extension of our commitment to protect and restore wildlife habitat, confront global warming and connect people with nature. For the staff and friends of the National Wildlife Federation, it is also an opportunity to connect and engage with fellow wildlife enthusiasts as we embrace our promise to protect wildlife.

Our authors include staff throughout the organization including senior leadership, naturalists, education experts, magazine writers, policy experts and others that enjoy sharing their passion for wildlife with the online world. We also occasionally feature guest authors from leading online publications.
