The Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) is a statewide non-profit organization established in 1985 to represent private
land stewards, land managers, conservationists, hunters and anglers from across the state of Texas.
Its members care for and control almost 40 million acres of rangeland and wildlife habitat that are key components
of Texas’ upstream watersheds. Because nearly 95 percent of land in Texas is privately owned, the involvement of
private land stewards is critical in establishing Texas’ long-term conservation policies.
TWA has three main program areas: Conservation Legacy (youth and adult education), Hunting Heritage (Texas
Youth Hunting Program and Texas Big Game Awards Program), and Issues and Advocacy. The principal objectives
of the Association are to enhance the game and non-game wildlife resources of Texas for the benefit of all through
the preservation and improvement of wildlife habitat, sensible management practices, appropriate legislative action
and education of the public concerning the needs of wildlife and the importance of this great resource to all citizens.
The Texas Wildlife Association has helped pass significant legislation that allows landowners to put wildlife first.
Efforts include the limitation of liability for agricultural landowners who allow wildlife recreation on their property
and the establishment of wildlife management as a recognized property tax valuation.
