Improving Opportunities for Hunters and Anglers
Sustaining Landscapes and Habitat for Wildlife Through Cooperative Conservation

The Department of Interior has achieved significant accomplishments for hunters and anglers under the leadership of avid sportsmen President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Under Secretary Gale Norton, the Department is expanding cooperative conservation funding and partnerships, implementing the Healthy Forests Initiative, expanding hunting and fishing access, and promoting best management practices.

Significant Accomplishments for Hunters and Anglers:

  • Achieving record amounts of conservation funding - The department has provided $1.3 Billion in grants to States, private landowners, sportsmen, hunting and fishing groups, and conservation groups.
