Houston Safari Club recently signed on to the following letter of support for the WILD Act (S. 826).
Chairman John Barrasso (R-WY) and ranking Member Tom Carper (D-DE) joined with several other Senators to introduce S. 826, the Wildlife Innovation and Longevity Driver (WILD) Act. S. 826, was passed in the Senate and now moves to the House of Representatives.
The WILD Act will promote wildlife conservation, assist in the management of invasive species, and help protect endangered species. The bipartisan legislation will reauthorize government conservation programs such as USFWS’s Partners for Fish & Wildlife Program and multinational wildlife conservation programs.
The WILD Act would also establish cash-prize competitions for technological innovations in the prevention of illegal poaching and trafficking, management of invasive species, promotion of conservation, and protection of endangered wildlife.
