About WildlifeUnite

America’s Largest Gathering of Conservation Leaders

WildlifeUnite is the annual gathering of grassroots wildlife conservation leaders from across the nation.  WildlifeUnite is built around the core of the National Wildlife Federation’s Annual Meeting, the longest-running annual conference of wildlife conservation advocates in the nation.

WildlifeUnite will take place from June 21-24, 2023 on the shore of Lake Tahoe, cohosted by the National Wildlife Federation and our affiliate organizations the Planning and Conservation League and the Nevada Wildlife Federation. We look forward to spotlighting the issues, people, and communities of the Sierra Nevada region.

Over the course of four days, conservation advocates will have opportunities to share information, develop their skills, and set strategy to tackle the most pressing issues facing wildlife and people.

Our Commitment to Shared Values and Respect

The National Wildlife Federation is committed to providing a safe, respectful and welcoming environment for our staff, affiliates, sponsors, partners, and guests during WildlifeUnite. The Federation is committed to inclusion, collaboration, empowerment, mindfulness, and our mission-focus. As we all move forward, it is ever more important for each of us individually to embody those values in our work and in our interactions with each other.

It is the responsibility of all WildlifeUnite participants to treat each other with dignity and respect during all portions of the conference including social events. We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for people of every gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, ability level, physical appearance, body size, religious views, race, and ethnicity.

The National Wildlife Federation does not tolerate the harassment, discrimination, bullying, intimidation, abuse of authority, or mistreatment of any individual. 

If you experience or witness harassment, feel uncomfortable, or have any other concerns, please report this immediately to any Director of Conservation Partnerships, NWF General Counsel Ben Kota, or NWF Board Member Mary Van Kerrebrook. The National Wildlife Federation will take swift, appropriate measures to protect those who have experienced harassment or mistreatment to ensure they feel safe for the duration of the conference. Federation staff, board affiliates, and partners will work together to hold accountable any person who harasses or mistreats another.

Working together, we will ensure that WildlifeUnite is a place where we can deepen our relationships and keep growing an inclusive and influential conservation movement.
