Energy and Wildlife Policy Committee

The Energy and Wildlife Policy Committee is focused on energy development and generation in North America and its impacts on fish and wildlife resources and their landscape habitats at the state, province, territory, region and international levels.

The committee works cooperatively with public and private interests to adequately protect fish and wildlife resources and their habitats during energy exploration, development and production.

The committee also maintains an active liaison with federal and provincial agencies, tribal governments, industry and energy research facilities to monitor, advise, review and coordinate energy-related issues—including policy development, regulation development and any actions—which impact fish and wildlife resources as energy resources are developed. It monitors federal programs and informs states, provinces and territories via the Association about funding opportunities available to help these entities respond to federal energy-related activities in their jurisdiction. The committee makes policy recommendations to the Association in a timely manner, as indicated by federal actions, planning processes, etc.
