Since 1991, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation has served as the official non-profit funding partner for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. By bringing together companies, corporations, communities and individuals the Foundation has successfully raised more than $80 million, funding a wide variety of projects.
Programs like Keep Texas Wild and Healthy Habitats are educating the next generation of land stewards, conservation initiatives such as the Commercial Shrimp License Buyback Program are restoring habitat and protecting wildlife, and projects like the Texas Fresh Water Fisheries Center in Athens and the World Birding Center in the Rio Grande Valley expand opportunities to experience the outdoors.
The activities and programs of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation would not be possible without the generous support of our corporate partners.
