Conservation Hawks is a new conservation group dedicated to educating hunters and anglers on the most important threats to our natural resources and outdoors traditions. This non-partisan group run by passionate, dedicated sportsmen, defines its mission as “To defend our sporting heritage and pass on a healthy natural world to future generations of Americans.”
Conservation Hawks believes climate change is this century’s most important threat to sportsmen. The group’s initial efforts will focus on informing and mobilizing the sporting community on the issue.
The mission—and the challenges—are perfectly framed in a recent article by our friend Hal Herring at fieldandstream.com. To get a sense of how committed the Hawks are to the cause read “If Climate Change Isn’t Real, I’ll Give You My Beretta”, and be sure to absorb some of the comments in the thread. A sobering exercise indeed.
