In 1973, when the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in Fredericksburg, Va., there were approximately 1.3 million wild turkeys throughout North America.
After decades of dedicated work, that number has reached more than 6 million turkeys—an accomplishment considered by many to be one of the greatest success stories in wildlife conservation.
Thanks to the collaborative efforts of its volunteers and committed partners, the NWTF continues to make an impact on conservation and outreach efforts.
