Wildlife Watchers Want a Voice in Wildlife Management
WYOMING WOMEN WILDLIFE WATCHERS
The National Elk Refuge – September 14, 2013
“The wildlife in this country is ‘owned’ by its citizens. This legal concept implies that we all share equal, undivided interests in our wild animals. The government holds wildlife in trust for our benefit and is empowered to manage it for the public good.
While hunting is a seasonal activity, wildlife watchers/tourists, photographers, outdoor enthusiasts, etc. can provide states with a much more reliable, year round source of revenue. They comprise a broader base of resident and nonresident consumers who are eager and willing to assist in the funding of state wildlife agencies.” Wolfwatcher
We want a voice in Wyoming wildlife management! It’s time!
