Since its founding in 1993, the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust has worked with private landowners to create more than 100 permanent wildlife sanctuaries in 38 states and eight foreign countries.  On these sanctuaries, recreational and commercial hunting and trapping will always be prohibited.

The Wildlife Land Trust, alone or in collaboration with a variety of partners, has been involved in the protection of millions of acres of wildlife habitat.  As a proud affiliate of the Humane Society of the United States, the WLT joins in campaigns to protect wildlife from cruel and indefensible practices such as poaching, steel-jawed leghold traps, Internet hunting and canned shoots.
