Elk, ruffed grouse, pheasant, turkey, hunter deer, and many other wildlife species throughout the Great Lakes and Appalachian States will soon receive assistance.
In order to maintain and improve habitat in important areas throughout Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin while enhancing hunting opportunities, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the Ruffed Grouse Society and American Woodcock Society( RGS & AWS ) entered into a three-year conservation agreement.
According to Kyle Weaver, president and CEO of RMEF,” this arrangement allows two long-term, hunter-based protection organizations to share our combined energy and resources to carry out significant and measurable protection work.” In this daring, new effort, we are grateful for our RGS and AWS partners.
For RGS and AWS forest managing work, RMEF may provide yearly grant funds that will be used as personal match funding.
Elk and ruffed bird hunters have a shared respect for difficult, genuinely exotic activities. We are even aware of the duty to protect these riches. Ben Jones, president and CEO of RGS & AWS, added,” It feels great to collaborate with RMEF and start working toward greater habitat outcomes than either of us was only.
The Eastern Elk Initiative of the RMEF aims to increase deer populations in the East by protecting and enhancing wildlife habitat while facilitating or increasing public exposure. Additionally, it aims to support options for deer hunting in the eastern states.
Effective forest management is the main target of RGS and AWS efforts to enhance wildlife habitat. The company is developing networks for landscape-scale wildlife function that use local charity with public and private funds in a sustainable manner.
