Ensuring Fish And Wildlife for Generations To Come

Established in 1981, the N.C. Wildlife Endowment Fund allows hunters, anglers and wildlife enthusiasts to become shareholders in an innovative investment and conservation program. A simple, yet revolutionary idea, the wildlife fund resulted in the creation of lifetime licenses, with those associated license fees and any other specified contributions put into a special fund spending the accrued interest, not the principal, on programs and projects that benefit fish and wildlife. Since the fund's inception, the Wildlife Commission has spent more than $50 million in interest on programs and projects.
