RMEF enhances mission statement to include ‘hunting heritage’

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation recently affirmed its commitment to the conservation benefits of hunting by adding to its mission statement. The mission statement now reads: “To ensure the future of elk, other wildlife, their habitat and our hunting heritage.”
“This is a logical step for us,” said David Allen, RMEF CEO and president. “Hunting is conservation. Not only does hunting provide a way for families to fill the freezer, but it gives us a deep-seeded connection to and much-needed funding for land and wildlife. This new addition to our mission statement merely formalizes a priority RMEF already supported and dedicated itself to for years.”
Hunter-generated revenue has allowed RMEF to accelerate the pace of its conservation work during the past two and a half decades. To date, RMEF protected or enhanced more than 6.1 million acres of wildlife habitat.
