“Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow is a program that is designed to increase the awareness and expertise of natural resource professionals regarding consumptive uses of fish and wildlife. Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow is not a program to recruit hunters, anglers, or trappers; it is designed to provide those natural resource professionals who do not engage in any of these activities knowledge, experience, and skills so that they can better interact with stakeholders and management issues that involve these consumptive uses.”

John Organ, Chief of the USGS Cooperatve Fish and Wildlife Research Units
