Our Friend and Champion

In an average week, Jim Range accomplished more for America’s fish, wildlife, and conservationists than many people do in a lifetime. It would be tough to find an equally passionate outdoorsman, astute policymaker, articulate orator, or great friend. Jim Range’s self-described “labor of love” was the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, an organization he co-founded and led until his untimely death in 2009. Through the TRCP, Jim channeled his passion for conservation and his firm belief that all Americans must have access to exceptional places to hunt and fish. Through his sweat, tears, time, and dollars, Jim led the TRCP toward a vision for redefining the role that sportsmen and sportswomen play in natural resource policymaking.

While Jim’s life was cut short, his hard work and dedication to the conservation of fish and wildlife in support of our nation’s sporting traditions are entrenched in all of our lives through the TRCP.

With the TRCP’s establishment of the Jim Range Conservation Fund, we ensure that Jim’s conservation legacy endures.

Jim’s Legacy, Our Future

Jim was never short on words, and he always voiced his opinion with a vocabulary and seasoning that were his trademark. While his death was a shock, we can easily hear his voice offering advice on the issues we face today and bolstering our efforts to build the TRCP into a force that will exist long into the future.

The TRCP staff and board and the Jim Range Conservation Fund Leadership Council ask that you consider investing in the Jim Range Conservation Fund to ensure that Jim Range’s voice will continue to influence the way we conserve our fish and wildlife habitat. We thank you for helping us work to guarantee all Americans high-quality places to hunt and fish … now and in the future.
