HOW CAN I SUPPORT CONSERVATION?
Dollars for Conservation
Because of the many ways license fees are used to the benefit of all wildlife, the purchase of a hunting and fishing license, whether by a sportsman or a non-sportsman, is one of the most effective contributions today for conservation.
Other ways to contribute to conservation:
- Purchase a WMA User Permit - Revenue is used for management activities and improvements on Wildlife Management Areas.
- Purchase a Waterfowl Stamp - Duck stamp revenue is used for waterfowl management efforts in Mississippi and Canada. When you conserve wetlands, you are also benefiting non-game species (i.e. shorebirds, amphibians, and reptiles) that share the same habitat.
- Purchase Hunting and Fishing Equipment
- Choose a "Conserving Wildlife" Car Tag
- Subscribe to MS Outdoors Magazine
- Donate to the Foundation for Mississippi Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks

Pass It On
You can help ensure conservation efforts in Mississippi will continue for generations to come by simply sharing your passion for the outdoors with someone new. When you take the time to introduce someone new, especially a youth, to the activities you enjoy, you also pass on its traditions, skills, and values. In turn, you are keeping alive Mississippi's outdoor heritage, and ensuring future generations will be connected to nature and conservation.
