Wildlife for the 21st Century (Volume IV)
The League and dozens of the nation’s leading hunting, angling, and conservation groups have joined together to make recommendations to President Obama and national policymakers to strengthen conservation, management of fish, wildlife, and habitat, and access to public lands and waters. The recommendations in Wildlife for the 21st Century address a range of issues important to tens of millions of Americans who hunt, fish, and enjoy outdoor recreation. The recommendations also reflect some of the League’s top policy priorities, including restoring Clean Water Act protections to streams and wetlands and ensuring the Farm Bill continues to fund habitat conservation on private lands.
The Clean Water Act: 40 Years of Progress in Peril
In 1972, a long-fought battle spearheaded by the Izaak Walton League and other conservation groups resulted in a Clean Water Act to protect America’s waterways from pollution. Forty years later, the conservation community finds itself facing another battle — this time to protect the Clean Water Act itself.
