On this week’s episode of the Project Upland Podcast, President and CEO of the Thedore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, Whit Fosburgh, joins us.
Whit Fosburgh entered the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership in June 2010. Before working at the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, Fosburgh spent fifteen years growing the organization Trout Unlimited into a conservation powerhouse. Fosburgh additionally served as fisheries’ director for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, chief environment and energy staff person for Sen. Tom Daschle, and wildlife specialist for the National Audobon Society.
On today’s show, our conversation focuses on the number one priority of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership. That is, to guarantee all Americans quality places to hunt and fish. We cover current federal policy issues, sage grouse conservation, the 2018 farm bill—and much more.
Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership Mission: “We help create federal policy and funding solutions by uniting our partners and amplifying the voices of American sportsmen and women in service of Theodore Roosevelt’s conservation legacy.”
More from Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership:
“In 1912, Roosevelt said, ‘There can be no greater issue than that of conservation in this country.’ While in the political arena, he succeeded in making conservation a top-tier national issue. T.R. had the foresight to address these issues still so significant to sportsmen today, understanding that if we want to safeguard critical habitat, productive hunting grounds, and favorite fishing holes for future generations, we must plan carefully today.”
