By following game laws and supporting Tennessee Wildlife Federation, you are the key to keeping Tennessee CWD free. Despite chronic wasting disease recently being found in Mississippi, Tennessee Wildlife Federation has made significant progress on keeping the disease out of Tennessee. Since the Federation hosted the Chronic Wasting Disease Summit in February 2017, we have successfully advocated for a carcass importation ban in Tennessee. The ban was adopted last summer and then strengthened in February of this year.
In the fall of 2017, the Federation hosted Dr. John Fischer, director of University of Georgia’s Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study, on a tele-townhall with state leaders. That discussion is available here, along with updated resources about the disease. Visit tnwf.org/CWD to learn more.
Because of your support, the Federation is a nationally recognized leader in conservation and is able to continue spearheading efforts to safeguard our wildlife in a variety of ways, including efforts to keep Tennessee CWD free.
