EDGEFIELD, S.C. -(Ammoland.com)- The NWTF is pleased to announce the hiring of Matt Fenoff as the National Wild Turkey Federation’s Vice President of Development.
Fenoff comes to the NWTF from Ducks Unlimited with an extensive and successful track record at multiple levels of conservation fundraising – something he credits to the partnerships that he and his staff built with regional directors and grassroots volunteers in the regions he has served. He will officially start with the NWTF in late April.
Since 2014, Fenoff served as the managing director of development for DU’s Great Plains Region. Prior to moving to the Great Plains, he spent six years as the director of development for the North Atlantic Region and four years as a regional director in New York.
Prior to his time with DU, Fenoff worked as a wildlife biologist for the Missouri Department of Conservation. Fenoff holds a degree in Wildlife Management from the University of New Hampshire.
“Matt is an avid turkey hunter who has long supported the mission of the NWTF, and we are pleased to welcome him to the organization,” said Becky Humphries, NWTF Chief Conservation and Operations Officer.
About the National Wild Turkey Federation:
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.5 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit an historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters’ rights. Thanks to the efforts of dedicated volunteers, professional staff and committed partners, the NWTF has facilitated the investment of $488 million in wildlife conservation and the preservation of North America’s hunting heritage. The NWTF has improved more than 17 million acres of wildlife habitat and introduce 100,000 people to the outdoors each year. The NWTF Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative is a charge that mobilizes science, fundraising and devoted volunteers to raise $1.2 billion to conserve and enhance more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruit at least 1.5 million hunters and open access to 500,000 acres for hunting.
