Wildlife's Contribution to Society

Through the years, Wildlife Preserves has created, donated, and sold several thousand acres of land to start many national preserves and county parks. It also has protected wildlife and its habitats from being molested, hunted, and harvested by mankind.

Wildlife Preserves currently owns approximately 6,000 acres of land - including its premier Troy Meadows wildlife sanctuary - and as a result of preserving and retaining its private property, Wildlife provides the general public with open space and recreational opportunities at no cost to taxpayers. Through the years, Wildlife Preserves has also saved vast areas of flood plains, which has saved property owners billions of dollars in flood damage as its land retains floodwaters and mitigates flooding during storm events, also at no cost to the public.
