Wildlife Heritage Foundation

WHF is dedicated to preserving California’s rich heritage of open spaces, agricultural land, and diverse wildlife. With that dedication, the directors and staff welcome land-conservation projects of all sizes that aim to protect wildlife and their habitats. In our long term vision for the future of these natural places, we believe it to be more than necessary to pass on an appreciation of the outdoors to the youth of California. For this reason WHF provides educational opportunities for hundreds of students every year to experience and appreciate the abundance of plants and animals living on our protected open-space preserves.

Mission Statement:

To protect, enhance, and restore wildlife habitat on lands conserved for the benefit of future generations.

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation (WHF) is a an accredited public, nonprofit land trust under section 501(c)(3).
