What is the Kentucky Conservation Coalition?
Background: During the past several decades there has been a gradual fragmentation within the conservation community. In the past, there were only a few conservation or sportsmen advocacy groups. Today, there are countless special interest conservation groups, each a more defined and narrowed focus. While groups such as Ducks Unlimited, Quail Unlimited, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the National Wild Turkey Federation, and Trout Unlimited, to name a few, have contributed tremendously to fish and wildlife management, one thing has eroded in the process. Unity.
The mission of the KCC is to organize conservation groups and their members so that their united voices can be heard on important issues impacting fish and wildlife management, wildlife-related recreation interests, and natural resource conservation in Kentucky. Our fishing, hunting, trapping, and natural resource conservation heritage is depending on it. We need to pass the things we hold dear to the next generation, and the time to act is now.
A United Voice: The KCC believes there is strength in numbers. Anglers, hunters, trappers, and other conservationists must join together to support the common cause of protecting our fish and wildlife conservation heritage for present and future generations.
We will provide you with an understanding of the issues as they arise. We will arm you with the facts and give you recommendations on action. We will encourage our members to help protect Kentuckyís natural resources. As important issues occur, the KCC will alert members and help them contact key decision-makers.
It can be very expensive to do nothing, but it is free to join! Join forces with your fellow hunters, anglers, trappers, and conservationists now!
