“We started conservation week last year because, while the spring season may be over, our conservation work never stops,” said NWTF co-CEO Kurt Dyroff. “The week leads up to National Hunting and Fishing Day and is the perfect time to showcase the breadth of our conservation delivery and the integral connection between conservation and hunting. The relationship is the essence of our mission, and we want to bring that into focus during the week.”
Throughout Conservation Week, the NWTF will share its conservation accomplishments, organizational milestones and ongoing initiatives — all tying together the mission to conserve the wild turkey and preserve our hunting heritage — specifically through the lens of the NWTF’s America’s Big Six of Wildlife Conservation, recent funding of wild turkey research and content that captures the essence of the soul of the American hunter.
The week will begin with a message from NWTF co-CEOs challenging viewers to engage with NWTF digital channels throughout the week and to get outdoors and contribute to conservation in some form, whether mentoring new hunters, picking up trash, planting trees, enhancing wildlife habitat or other activity that pushes the conservation needle forward. The week will conclude on National Hunting and Fishing Day.
