History & Founders


WFEN arose from the Summit on Wildlife Friendly Enterprise held in March 2007 at the White Oak Conservation Center in Yulee, Florida. Representatives of eight countries and 26 entities attended. At the Summit’s conclusion, participants formalized the Steering Committee for the Wildlife Friendly Enterprise Network. The Network sets the global standard for wildlife friendly enterprise and assists members to reach new and dynamic markets.
