The Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation is a non-profit, non-government, charitable organization of over 33,000 members in 122 branches across Saskatchewan representing every walk of life. Per capita, we are the largest wildlife conservation organization of its kind in the world. Established in 1929, the SWF has become an acknowledged leader in the conservation field.
Weyburn Wildlife Federation was established in 1950.
The WWF was originally known as the Weyburn Fish and Game League, founded in the mid-1930s, which later became affiliated with the Saskatchewan Fish and Game League. The local branch of the league was active with a fish restocking program, hatching, raising and releasing pheasants and partridges, hunting dog competitions, a crow and magpie predator program, feeding birds and deer during snowbound winters and improving relations between hunters and farmers. The Saskatchewan Fish and Game League became the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation in 1969, and the Weyburn branch followed shortly after. The federation was incorporated in 1986 under the Societies Act. The Weyburn Wildlife Federation built the Nickle Lake walleye rearing pond in 1989, and with help from the City of Weyburn and the Saskatchewan Fisheries branch, members worked to supply walleye fingerlings to Nickle Lake for 20 years before problems developed and the pond was no longer operated.
