Sportsmen unite to request $1.3B for conservation

Hunters and fishermen are champions of conservation and have a vested interest in healthy and diverse fish and animal populations

Hunters and fishermen are conservationists at heart. Our passion for the outdoors drives us to protect the resources we love. That is why, recently, a group of conservationists and sportsmen drafted a $1.3 billion funding plan to provide states the money they need to protect species that are in decline.


The group responsible, known as the Blue Ribbon Panel on Sustaining America’s Diverse Fish and Wildlife Resources, is guided by Bass Pro Shops founder John L. Morris and the former governor of Wyoming Dave Freudenthal. The panel contains a total of 26 representatives from sportsmen’s groups, businesses, conservation organizations and state wildlife agencies.

The $1.3 billion would come from an existing fee levied on onshore and offshore energy and mineral resource development. It is a state based solution with bipartisan backing.
