Working to ensure wildlife conservation and sustainable use of your natural resources

In 2018, 15.7 million American's hunted and 49.4 million Americans fished. Hunting and fishing are important to our economy. Hunters and target shooters spent $44 billion last year supporting 854,000 jobs. In FY 2020 they contributed $917.5 million to state fish and wildlife agencies for Wildlife and Sportfish Restoration Programs — $22.9 billion in the history of the programs.

In August of 2000 the Boone and Crockett Club organized an historical conservation summit that has had a profound effect on the future of wildlife. This landmark meeting resulted in the creation of the American Wildlife Conservation Partners—a coalition of 35 wildlife organizations. Today, AWCP has grown to a consortium of 50 organizations that represent the interests of America’s millions of hunter-conservationists, professional wildlife and natural resource managers, outdoor recreation users, conservation educators, and wildlife scientists. While individual organizations have their own primary areas of interest, collectively we all are dedicated to ensuring the vitality of our wildlife resources and providing for sustainable public use and enjoyment of those resources under the science-based management of the state and federal fish and wildlife agencies, in cooperation with habitat and land management by the federal, state, county, and local governments.

In order to further the mission of AWCP, to ensure wildlife conservation, and sustainable public use of these natural resources, AWCP members interact and engage with federal agencies and Congress regularly to advance policies, both legislative and regulatory, which promote wildlife conservation and public access to lands.
