Regulated trapping has played an integral role in modern wildlife conservation. The activity of trapping, while adding benefit of self-reliance, funding, understanding, or health & safety to many across North America, has also been an extremely important tool for conserving furbearing species.
Those involved in the Furbearer Conservation™ think tank have worked tirelessly to both promote regulated trapping as a management tool, and also solidify a well established working relationship between sustainable users (trappers/hunters) and biologists (both state appointed and independent).
We have collaborated with several pro-trapping groups and advocates in Canada and the United States with trapper outreach and support. We have worked extensively in the Northeast with hunting/trapping advocacy, outreach, and education. In New Hampshire, we have also dedicated countless man-hours to outreach, legislative testimony, education (both public and state appointed), and assistance with scientific study and research in regards to furbearer health and understanding (particularly with Fisher, and Bobcat).
Contributors to FurbearerConservation.com have been recognized locally in New Hampshire and Internationally in the form of public praise and awards, for dedicated efforts in fostering highly regulated trapping ethics and sustainable wildlife conservation efforts. Additionally, commentary from our contributors has been featured internationally, both in radio and print.
This website and its contributors will continue to promote proper education on the subject of regulated trapping, offer commentary, testimony and criticism of flawed or restrictive legislation, and continue to advocate for sustainable wise use of natural resources in a way that is beneficial to biodiversity and cohesive with researchers, biologists, and the general public.
*Furbearer Conservation does not receive any state or federal funding for its operations. Our work and commentary is made possible by the support of contributors who value our tenacity and commitment to Sportsmen's rights and the "common sense" conservation of wildlife.
