In 1990 eight federal agencies and five wildlife nonprofits signed an MOU to provide a framework for cooperative activities necessary to develop, implement, maintain and enhance a Watchable Wildlife Program on federal and state lands and to assist private landowners.
Today Watchable Wildlife Inc. is an independent 501 C 3 wildlife nonprofit. However our relationship with our original federal partners remains as the cornerstone for our programs. Our new MOU has been written and approved and is currently working its way through the signatory process. The original group of eight has grown to thirteen and includes the following agencies and departments, pending the final approval process.
