With human populations exploding, our planet is becoming crowded, polluted, more civilized, less wild. How can natural gifts be preserved for future generations? WHO'S PROTECTING THE GREAT OUTDOORS?
On the front line of natural resource protection, often working alone, routinely facing dangerous situations are GAME WARDENS. Risking and sometimes sacrificing their lives for conservation, they are NORTH AMERICAN HEROES.
Our project, the North American Game Warden Museum, has two missions: to HONOR these heroes and to EDUCATE the public about their work and the natural resources they protect.
"We believe by that by educating the public about natural resources and the men and women who protect them, we can help create better conservationists across this continent."
"By introducing the heroes of our profession, especially those who have given their lives in the line of duty, we can make the matter of natural resource protection real, immediate, and personal to our visiting public."
These two founding mission statements serve as the fundamental principles of the North American Game Warden Museum.
