New Virginia Wildlife eStore Bringing Outdoor Gear to Your Doorstep!

Finding the perfect gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life just got a little easier. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) recently launched a redesigned Virginia Wildlife eStore (www.shopDGIF.com) packed with new outdoor gear.

The new eStore features easy online ordering of everything from gear and apparel to collectables and gifts for all ages. A secure log-in process makes ordering and shipping a breeze with any major credit card.

"We are pleased to offer a wide selection of DGIF-branded items which promote the Agency and the great outdoors, and connect people to wildlife in a new way," said Bob Duncan, Executive Director, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

The Virginia Wildlife eStore is the result of a public/private partnership between DGIF, The Wildlife Foundation of Virginia, and Target Marketing.

Jenny West, Executive Director of The Wildlife Foundation of Virginia, said "Making a purchase is a great way to support wildlife conservation in Virginia."

"This is a great partnership. We're very pleased to be able to work with the Department and The Wildlife Foundation of Virginia to offer great products for a good value," said Jim Nathanson, Director, Target Marketing.

Future plans are to expand the eStore by developing new products, promoting Virginia-made items, and opening sales to wholesale markets. Proceeds from the eStore are used to support hunting, fishing, boating and wildlife watching programs in Virginia.
