Environmental Button

The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) produced this button for its 2001 annual meeting in Washington, D.C. The NWF was founded in 1936 amid widespread concern about declining waterfowl populations. It sought to educate citizens about wildlife conservation and natural resources management. As this button cleverly suggests, the NWF engages the federal government over these matters. For the last 40 years, the NWF has been the nation’s largest conservation organization.
