Partnerships in Conservation Educational Video Library
Working with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Shell has teamed up to produce a series of educational videos on efforts to protect iconic American wildlife and habitats.
For over twenty years, Shell has worked with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, or NFWF for short in protecting fish, wildlife and habitats across the US. Learn more about the eight programs Shell supports near its major operations and cities and town where Shell employees live and work. These videos were underwritten by Shell and are a great tool to learn about NFWF grantees and the great work that they do. Check back frequently as videos are added monthly.

The Pecos River winds more than 900 miles from its headwaters in the ponderosa pine forests of northern New Mexico, through the Chihuahuan Desert grasslands of southeastern New Mexico and West Texas. The river supports some of the most biodiverse arid and semiarid ecosystems in the world. Watch this breathtaking video to learn more.

Learn about efforts in Western Pennsylvania to increase river quality and connectivity
Brook trout are native species to Western Pennsylvania. All they really need to thrive is access to cold water, good food and a nice habitat. These wandering fish swim to get food and spawn, but narrow or crushed culverts under road crossings can severely limit their mobility. This delightful video shows the efforts to restore their habitat and features a cameo of the elusive hellbender and other fun creatures.
Strengthening communities and wildlife through new marshes, reefs and beaches.
The National Coastal Resilience Fund supports on-the-ground projects that engage communities and helps to reduce their vulnerability while benefiting fish and wildlife. These include coastal marshes and wetlands, dune and beach systems, oyster and coral reefs, mangroves, forests, coastal rivers, and barrier islands that help minimize the impacts of storms, rising sea levels and other extreme events.
Killer whales play a key role in the ecological and cultural fabric of the Pacific Northwest.
Learn more about the Killer Whale Research and Conservation Program (KWRCP), which provides grants to conservation-focused nonprofits to help restore and enhance the populations of Chinook Salmon, the key prey for killer whales. Shell has been a part of the Anacortes, WA community since 1955 via the Puget Sound Refinery, and it identified the KWRCP as a key local conservation effort for the region. “We are proud to be a part of this collaborative effort through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation,” said Shirley Yap, Shell Puget Sound Refinery’s general manager. “We are committed to supporting regional research and conservation efforts that focus on recovering a species that is iconic to the Salish Sea and the cultural heritage of the Pacific Northwest.”
