(HOUSTON, TX- July 10, 2020) Houston Safari Club Foundation (HSCF), as a member of The American Wildlife Conservation Partners, is proud to have participated with other conservation partners, in the development of Wildlife for the 21st Century: Volume VI.
The document contains recommendations for the next White House Administration and the next two Congresses, as they relate to wildlife, habitat, access, and recreation. Adoption of these recommendations will improve federal agencies’ stewardship of our nation’s fish, wildlife, and habitats and enhance access to federal lands and waters for outdoor and wildlife-associated recreation, which contribute significantly to the quality of life and economic well-being of our citizens and future generations.
The Outdoor Recreation Economy was estimated at 2.2 percent of our nation’s Gross Domestic Product in 2017, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and is growing. Conserving native fish and wildlife populations and the landscapes that they depend on is essential to sustaining this important part of our economy and national identity.
