The Greatest Conservation Story Never Told

What would America's fish and wildlife resources be like today if it wasn't for the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Programs?
Let's hope we don't find out. The success of Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Safety Trust Funds over the past 75+ years to restore America's fish and wildlife, open access and provide safety education may be the greatest untold conservation story. 

But, as the March 1, 2013 sequestration deadline looms, hunters, recreational shooters, anglers, boaters, the outdoor industry, concerned non-profit organizations and agencies need to make some noise and tell Congress to "Keep the Trust" and exempt the Trust Funds permanently from budget sequestration!
