Description: New Mexico affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation, an old-line hunting and fishing organization founded in 1936 that was gradually co-opted by environmentalist leaders beginning in the 1980s, alienating former members who departed, and recruiting a new social-change and ideologically oriented membership.

In 2004, the national group chose a new CEO who made global warming its top priority, with extreme prejudice against fossil fuels, particularly oil and gas. The New Mexico affiliate is obligated to follow the lead of the national organization.

In January 2008, New Mexico Wildlife Federation President and Board Member Oscar A. Simpson III was appointed by New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson as a Commissioner of the New Mexico State Game Commission. He retained a position in NMWF as "Conservation Policy Chair." Simpson's connections to numerous anti-oil and gas groups has given rise to anger and suspicion about the Commission, especially its adoption of rules written by Sportsmen for Responsible Energy Development, which is supported by NMWF.
