Wildlife across the country, like the brook trout, are in decline. For more than a century, wildlife conservation efforts in America have been predominantly funded with user licenses and fees, putting hunters and anglers on the hook for supporting the majority of wildlife conservation programs in most states. With over 12,000 species of wildlife falling under “species of greatest conservation need”, hunters and anglers alone can't fund recovery efforts for the full range of at-risk wildlife. The Recovering America’s Wildlife Act would provide more than $1.3 billion annually to state-led wildlife conservation efforts, relieving some of the burden on the sporting community.
Hunters and anglers will benefit in myriad ways from the restoration and recovery efforts that would result from passage of the bipartisan Recovering America’s Wildlife Act. This legislation will restore outdoor habitat, leading to more fish and wildlife, more access for outdoor recreation, and a broader base of support for conservation that benefits both big game species and fish such as the brook trout.
Ask Congress to save America’s vulnerable game and nongame wildlife by supporting the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act.
