The agreement formally recognizes and acknowledges the shared conservation commitments of TU and FFI on behalf of the organizations’ members, customers, and communities. It also establishes communication between the groups as they collaborate toward achieving mutual conservation goals.
The partnership has been approved by FFI’s chairman of the board and president and CEO upon recommendation by the board’s Conservation Committee.
Trout Unlimited President and CEO Chris Wood said the partnership makes good sense for both TU and FFI.
“Fly Fishers International is driven by the three fundamental pillars of conservation, education and community,” Wood said. “That philosophy perfectly aligns with Trout Unlimited’s vision. “Because we share mutual conservation goals, we are natural allies.”
