Tribes are recognized as prominent fisheries and wildlife managers and participate in national fisheries and wildlife initiatives. Additionally, tribes wish to ensure that their fish and wildlife resources continue to thrive. As demand for fisheries and wildlife recreational facilities in this country have increased so has the pressure on their resources. Unfortunately, the funding options open to tribes have not kept pace with the expanding cost for management of these resources.
To ensure that these vast resource bases are kept intact for future generations, the Native American Fish & Wildlife Society supports tribal decision-makers in their efforts towards astute natural resource management. The Society represents professional biologists, natural resource managers, technicians, and conservation law enforcement officers. The Society shares educational, bio-technical, fiscal, and enforcement programs with the tribes to preserve and enhance tribal fish and wildlife resources.
