National Wildlife is an American magazine published bi-monthly by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), a nonprofit conservation group. In publication since 1962, and with an emphasis on wildlife conservation and natural history, it is designed to inform NWF’s Associate Members and other readers about key issues relating to the nation's natural resources and environment.

History and profile

The magazine features photography, stories and articles on nature and wildlife. The magazine also reports on new discoveries[5][6] about wildlife and wild animal behavior, how to garden naturally using native plants and how to attract birds,[7] butterflies and other wildlife to backyards and gardens.[8]
