About Delta Wildlife

The History of Delta Wildlife

Delta Wildlife was founded in 1990 by 100 farmers, sportsmen, and business leaders who each pledged $1,000.00 per year for three years to establish an organization that would be dedicated to the conservation, enhancement, and restoration of the wildlife and natural resources of the Delta and part-Delta counties of Northwest Mississippi. The organization quickly grew as it implemented projects and programs that generated “on-the-ground” results. Today, Delta Wildlife has become a leader in regional wildlife and natural resource conservation by holding fast to its original mission and implementation-based philosophy.
