The most critical aspect of wildlife conservation is habitat management. Habitat loss presents the greatest threat to wildlife.
As defined - habitat: Complete environmental requirements of an animal for survival: food, water, cover, space, and arrangement.
In an effort to prevent the needless depopulation of upland game and other wildlife, Quail & Upland Wildlife Federation Chapters conduct numerous habitat outings. On these outings we maintain and make repairs to natural springs or man-made sources of water, known as a Guzzlers. Low rainfall averages and severe seasonal weather such as droughts, extreme cold or hot periods can decimate a population of upland game and other wildlife due to a lack of water.
