You may have heard that the president is backing a bold conservation initiative that is gaining steam around the world. The idea is to have conservation on 30% of the land by the year 2030 to save 75% of wildlife species. The Hunting and Fishing community is greatly interested in seeing that our conservation and recreation interests are addressed as the initiative is fleshed out. It will be an incredible challenge to reach the initiative’s goal, but we can only hope to make significant progress by working together. As you can see at www.huntfish3030.com, Pheasants Forever is engaged and at the table, thanks to your support through the Legislative Action Fund.
There is so much going on at the national level that needs our attention, including a start on negotiations for the next Farm Bill and discussion on starting a North American Grasslands Conservation Act. LAF and the Call of the Uplands campaign allows us to accelerate mission delivery in the years ahead. All will yield benefits in Michigan and Beyond.
