Public invited to participate in three-day Idaho Wildlife Summit

The Idaho Fish & Game Department is launching a three-day “Wildlife Summit” this afternoon, to bring together hundreds of Idahoans with varying views to help guide the future of how the state funds its fish and wildlife programs. Currently, Idaho puts no state general funds into Fish & Game, instead relying almost entirely on hunting and fishing license fees and federal funds. But federal funds are dropping, license revenues are limited, and costs are rising with the complexity of the issues.

Idaho Statesman reporter Rocky Barker offers a guide to the summit here, including what's at stake and how to participate. There's more info at the Fish & Game website here. Among the central questions to be addressed at the summit: “What kind of wildlife legacy do we want to leave our children and grandchildren? How can we work together to create a positive future for wildlife in Idaho?”
