What tracks will you leave behind?
When you include a gift to Defenders of Wildlife in your will, you leave a lasting mark on wildlife and the world by helping us continue our conservation work. Because of your generous support, Defenders of Wildlife has made great strides protecting wolves, polar bears, and other wild animals and plants in their natural communities. But our work is far from over, and you can play an important role in ensuring the survival of wildlife and habitats for generations to come.
