A Note from the Regional Director
As I look at the news from NWF’s South Central region this summer, I am reminded that collaboration is at the heart of everything we do at NWF to conserve our natural heritage.

We have made some great partnerships this summer, from students at the University of Texas at San Antonio, to our community partners in Atlanta who helped conduct our annual Earth Tomorrow Summer Institute. We’ve also linked arms with sportsmen and women on behalf of Everglades restoration, and again with supporters across Texas to make sure state plans for desalination don’t hurt fragile marine life.

The work of conservation is too important to go it alone. We need our supporters, our affiliates like the Georgia Wildlife Federation and the Conservation Coalition of Oklahoma, and people like you, to help us take a stand. So thanks for all you do to make a place for wildlife in a rapidly changing world.

Creating Monarch Champions
Creating Monarch Champions
How do you inspire future wildlife leaders? In San Antonio, a Monarch Champion City, we’ve joined organizations across the city to create a Monarch Conservation Plan. One partner, the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), taught students the amazing wonders of the monarch.

See how students are taking action for their future!

Don’t Rub Salt in the Bays’ Wounds
Don’t Rub Salt in the Bays’ Wounds
Texas’ bays are important nurseries for fish and wildlife. Drought and overuse have put countless species in danger by reducing freshwater flows into the bays, until historic flooding earlier this year pushed them to the other extreme.

Now is our chance to get desalination right.

Welcoming Oklahoma to the Family
Welcoming Oklahoma to the Family
We recently welcomed the Conservation Coalition of Oklahoma to the NWF affiliate family. CCO is working relentlessly to help boost opposition to a proposed constitutional amendment that, if passed, poses significant threats to the state’s natural resources.

It is up to the citizens of Oklahoma to stop “bad” legislation when they cast their ballots.

Protect America’s Everglades
Protect America’s Everglades
Thick, smelly layers of toxic blue-green algae are coating FL’s coasts. The flow of clean water south from Lake Okeechobee to Florida Bay can help protect this precious area, but we need to join together to make it happen.

Protect this paradise and prevent another summer of toxic slime.
