If a critter should chew through it, sprinkle on the cayenne pepper or purchase some wire mesh at the local hardware store. Wire mesh is inexpensive and you can use it over and over again to keep wildlife away from bulbs. This is by far the best natural method to keep wildlife away from bulbs. Did you know that daffodils are naturally poisonous to wildlife? If all else fails, plant these bulbs and you won't ever have to worry about keeping wildlife away from bulbs. Some gardeners mix daffodil bulbs in with other bulbs and that helps keep wildlife away from bulbs too. Humans have the greatest negative impact on the environment and wildlife.

NWF focused its and its members' attention on passage of key legislation such as the Dingall-Johnson Act, US Wilderness Act, Water Pollution Control Act, Endangered Species Conservation Act and dozens more. Today NWF lobbying efforts center on climate and clean energy initiatives, and NWF continues work to safeguard wildlife and habitat. From legislative work to donating land for bald eagle habitats, the NWF implements innovative solutions. National Wildlife, NWF's magazine, credits the organization's efforts to ban lead shot used in waterfowl hunting for preventing death from lead poisoning for millions of birds across 27 species. Current NWF efforts center on animals and habitat impacted by the Gulf oil spill, polar bears and other species adversely impacted by climate change, and eradication of invasive species like the Asian Carp that threaten indigenous species' survival. In addition to conservation, NWF expends enormous effort on outreach and education.
