The Federation presented a public policy update about issues facing conservation and wildlife to members of the Tennessee Chapter of The Wildlife Society at their annual meeting.
The presentation is a valuable way for student and professional conservationists to keep informed about state and federal legislation and key issues that can impact Tennessee’s wildlife and natural resources. It’s also an important chance for the Federation to engage The Wildlife Society members to actively support critical bills such as Recovering America’s Wildlife Act and dedicated and permanent funding for the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which has now been included in the Great American Outdoors Act funding package.
Other topics addressed included conservation funding, Asian carp, parks, migratory birds, and public access.
We thank the Tennessee Chapter of The Wildlife Society for its continued partnership.
