CONSERVATION FEDERATION OF MISSOURI
The Conservation Federation of Missouri was formed in 1935, and originally called the Restoration and Conservation Federation of Missouri. Formed by state citizens, the purpose behind the organization was to generate citizen involvement in protecting wildlife in the state—not to curb hunters and fishers, but to keep that wildlife population sustainable. As of 2024, the organization is still in existence and partners with the Conservation Department of Missouri’s government on a program called Share The Harvest, which encourages hunters to donate deer they hunt so that the venison can be processed and donated to community members experiencing food insecurity and financial hardship.
