2018 Wildlife for All Conference
In August 2018, the Southwest Environmental Center and Western Wildlife Conservancy organized the first “Wildlife for All” conference in Albuquerque, NM. It was attended by more than 100 wildlife advocates from 20 states. The gathering was the first national conference to address the topic of reforming state wildlife management. Below are links to some of the presentations.
“So if the current system is broken, how do we fix it? What would the ideal system of state wildlife governance look like? The answer will vary in detail by state, but I think we can agree on the broad outlines: decision-making that reflects the full range of public attitudes and values towards wildlife and is transparent and accountable, is based on good science, and ensures the survival of wildlife for the future.”
