Hunters, anglers to help guide Canadian conservation policy

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed a new hunting and angling advisory panel to help steer the country through a new era of conservation challenges. The move follows the National Fish and Wildlife Conservation Congress, a first-ever event held in Ottawa this past May. Harper’s panel is structured and will function similarly to the Wildlife and Hunting Heritage Conservation Council appointed by President Obama in 2010.
The National Fish and Wildlife Conservation Congress brought together leading fish and wildlife scientists, government leaders, fish and wildlife agencies, conservation organizations and anglers and hunters with a goal of developing recommendations for conservation agencies in provinces and territories across the country.
Prime Minister Harper personally addressed Congress attendees and congratulated them on their initiative to improve fish, wildlife and natural resource management in Canada.
