Chronic Wasting Disease
Because deer hunters contribute heavily to conservation through the purchase of licenses and gear, this disease could have major impacts on funding to improve fish and wildlife habitat.
Investing in Farm Bill Conservation Programs
The Farm Bill incentivizes landowners to create habitat and walk-in access for sportsmen and women. The resulting boost to hunting and fishing opportunities will help drive outdoor recreation spending in the rural areas that need it most.
Securing Natural Climate Solutions
Healthy habitat can help to slow and reverse the effects of climate change, making the push for conservation and restoration more relevant than ever. Sportsmen and sportswomen are essential to securing these solutions, which would boost hunting and fishing opportunities and create conservation jobs.
Like other small but critically important forage fish, menhaden play a central role in the marine food web. This is why sportsmen and sportswomen are calling for federal fisheries managers to change their approach to managing forage fish like menhaden.
Ensuring the Future of the Colorado River
The Colorado River is essential to an entire region’s way of life—fortunately, decision-makers can support conservation of water resources in the Basin for future generations.
Restoring the Mississippi River Delta
Nearly 2,000 square miles of prime fish and wildlife habitat have vanished along Louisiana’s coast. But oil spill fines have created an opportunity to restore Louisiana’s coastal wetlands and fish habitat.
