Welcome to National Deer Alliance. For deer. For hunters.
Founded in 2015, the National Deer Alliance’s (NDA) mission is to serve as the guardian of wild deer conservation and our hunting heritage. The organization’s on behalf of deer, deer hunters, and the hunting industry is policy-focused, and the current priority areas include wild deer conservation, diseases, hunter access, and state and federal land management. NDA works on issues that impact all North American deer species and is backed by an impressive board of directors with members representing national deer organizations, the states through the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, universities, and the hunting industry.
While NDA was created for the purpose of working on all policy matters that impact deer, the staff and board of directors quickly realized that there is no more important issue than CWD. Just last year NDA revised its strategic plan and identified CWD as the top priority, and nearly 90% of the organization’s work is related to the issue. NDA now leads a coalition of organizations, researchers, states and tribes from the U.S. and Canada who are working to address the disease.
