Restoring Habitat Together - THE REPORT

The Call of The Uplands

Many have been impacted by the devastating loss of wildlife habitat and the decrease in numbers of hunters who fund conservation projects with their license fees. Pheasants Forever is dedicated to take significant steps to combat the devastating loss of wildlife habitat, particularly grassland wildlife, such as pheasants and quail. The Call of the Uplands campaign boasts the goal of improving 9 million acres of habitat, engaging 1.5 million people in educational events, and advocating for laws, policies and budgets that support our mission.  That’s a $500,000,000 commitment!
