Transcript Teaming TWW offers the safety net that states must have to restore declining wildlife before they become endangered. Specifically, the proposal, backed by 3,000 groups and businesses, calls for a national trust fund for block grants to the states for wildlife conservation, and associated recreation and education. Every state struggles with lack of consistent, dedicated, and adequate funding for conserving those species of wildlife not hunted or fished for, often called "nongame" wildlife. Songbirds, hawks, herons, chipmunks, turtles and frogs all fall into this category. We know that with funding in hand, state fish and _^S wildlife agencies are up to the challenge of saving ilf * wildlife and wild places. The strong financial support from hunters and anglers has resulted in a terrific game species conservation record, from the ..'j return of white-tailed deer to the restoration of the striped bass. ^l/f^l Now, we must have expanded fund- > ■ ing for states to protect the full spectrum of : v wildlife. Conserving wildlife habitat goes hand in hand with meeting the rising demands for nature ■',' tourism, wildlife viewing, more places close to home to s enjoy nature, and assuring our children stay connected to the outdoors. Outdoor recreation and wildlife education are the other two, closely related parts of the TWW equation. Dwindling fish and wildlife species and habitats directly impact some of the fastest growing forms of outdoor recreation. Taking a closer look at the alarm bells ringing for our overlooked wildlife illustrates just why such a broad, strong coalition of support is pressing for passage of TWW legislation. A wildlife-rich outdoor experience is in high demand by the American public and is one of our nation's great economic assets. America's recreation and tourism industry is the second- largest employer in the nation (after health care), providing jobs for more than 6 million Americans and a $22 billion trade surplus. The enjoyment of wildlife and nature is central to the outdoor recreation experience. In a 1994 survey taken by the outdoor recreation industry, 70% of all outdoor recreationists cited the "experience of nature" as an "important" motivation for their outdoor activities. Demand for outdoor recreation has put increasing pressure on all public lands but is greatest on lands and waters lltfc,^ close to major population centers. TWW offers a timely (as well as time-tested) ^§_. response to meeting the needs outlined above without relying on general fund appropriations. This proposal >.' '*'> ;f?!f can play an important role in sustaining and enhancing wildlife populations, responding to demand for recreation opportunities, and preserving the associated economic benefits for local and state economies, and the outdoor recreation industry. * Wildlife education ensures a balanced future for people and wildlife. Increasing urbanization leads to a loss of connection to nature because of a loss of the land stewardship ethic that grows from spending time outdoors. Less understanding of wildlife needs is leading to increased conflict over land use and "nuisance" species. Public support forthe conservation offish and wildlife and habitats requires public awareness and appreciation that can only happen through education. TWW offers the chance forus as a nation who cares about wildlife not to turn our backs, but to turn toward a positive solution that knits together conservation, recreation and education funding so critically needed in every state.
