APPEARS IN Hunting

Attend "Listening Sessions On Cooperative Conservation"

Friday, August 11, 2006

The Departments of the Interior, Agriculture, Commerce and Defense, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the White House Council on Environmental Quality are holding “listening sessions” around the country to exchange ideas on incentives, voluntary programs, and regulations that can improve results and promote cooperative conservation.

These sessions provide a vital opportunity for NRA members and the hunting community to ensure that their voices are heard.

The discussion topics will include:

  • How can the federal government better respect the interests of people with ownership in land, water, and other natural resources?
  • How can the federal government enhance wildlife habitat, species protection, and other conservation outcomes through regulatory and voluntary conservation programs?
  • How can the federal government enhance cooperation among federal agencies and with states, tribes, and local communities in the application of environmental protection and conservation laws?
  • How can the federal government work with states, tribes, and other public- and private-sector partners to improve science used in environmental protection and conservation?
  • How can the federal government work cooperatively with businesses and landowners to protect the environment and promote conservation?

These meetings will guide the federal government in the development of future policy proposals that build upon the success of cooperative conservation.
