Zinke Order will Enhance Big Game Migration Corridors
Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today applauded Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s Order to enhance big game migration corridors. The Order calls on the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service and Fish and Wildlife Service to work together with state fish and game agencies to identify and improve these critical habitats across the Western United States. Private landowners may join these efforts on a voluntary basis.
"The NRA applauds Secretary Zinke's decision to prioritize big game corridors and improve wildlife habitat on Federal lands. With this action today, the Secretary is taking steps to protect healthy wildlife populations and recognize that sportsmen are an integral part of modern natural resource management," said Chris W. Cox, NRA- ILA executive director. "This action will help make certain that future generations can enjoy abundant, healthy game populations.”
