Since 1984, the organization has enhanced or conserved more than 6 million acres of habitat — nearly all on public lands — for elk and other wildlife. More than 600,000 acres have been opened for public access including hunting, fishing and other recreation. Additionally, wild elk populations have been restored in parts of their former range here in North Carolina, as well as Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Missouri and Virginia.
