2012 National Fish and Wildlife Conservation Congress

“The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and its partners are hosting Canada’s first National Fish and Wildlife Conservation Congress that will be held at the Westin Ottawa, May 27-31, 2012. 

The National Fish & Wildlife Conservation Congress will showcase contemporary fish and wildlife restoration programs such as Eastern elk, Atlantic salmon, wild turkey and lake trout, and will present the latest research, assessment and management techniques for species such as Sandhill cranes and walleye. Resolution of challenges that include wildlife and agriculture conflicts, fisheries and aquaculture, the threat of new diseases, the impact of alien invasive species and species at risk will also be a core focus of the Congress. The role of science versus public opinion in policy decisions that affect fish and wildlife, the need for governments on both sides of the border to address funding shortfalls and reinvestment in natural resources, the introduction of policy and legislative changes to address threats to fish and wildlife populations and core recognition of sustainable use as an essential principle of conservation will also be discussed.

This first ever Canadian Congress will bring together leading fish and wildlife scientists, government leaders, federal, provincial, state and local fish and wildlife agencies, conservation organizations and anglers and hunters to participate in plenary sessions, workshops, discussions and debates about the future of fish and wildlife resources in North America. If you manage or study fish and game populations, are involved in the outdoor community or your lifestyle depends on the sustainable use of fish and wildlife populations, you will want to join us in Ottawa, May 27 – 31, 2012.”  – http://www.nfwcc.com/
