EDGEFIELD, S.C. — SABIC Innovative Plastics, a new corporate partner with the National Wild Turkey Federation, will work to improve 6,300 acres of wildlife habitat surrounding their plant in Burkville, Ala.
SABIC Innovative Plastics is a world-class manufacturer of specialized thermoplastics. The Burkville facility has been a long-time member of the Wildlife Habitat Council and a dedicated group of employees serves on a wildlife committee. The committee steers conservation efforts on the property to improve habitat for all wildlife. This partnership with the NWTF serves as another example of SABIC’s commitment to continually improving their conservation efforts.
“Through this effort, SABIC Innovative Plastics has set their organization apart from other companies in the industry,” said Luke Lewis, NWTF regional biologist for Alabama. “The company’s leadership is committed to providing quality products for their customers while striving to improve wildlife habitat and support outreach programs.”
The NWTF is the leader in upland wildlife habitat conservation in North America. A nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving the wild turkey and preserving our hunting heritage, the NWTF and its volunteers work closely with state, federal and provincial wildlife agencies and other partners.
Through these dynamic partnerships, the NWTF and its members have helped restore wild turkey populations throughout North America, spending more than $331 million to conserve nearly 16 million acres of habitat. Wild turkeys and hundreds of other species of upland wildlife, including quail, deer, grouse, pheasant and songbirds, benefit from this improved habitat.
