Trailblazers in Conservation Welcomes New Partner
| May 16, 2014
MISSOULA, Mont.--The Boone and Crockett Club welcomes leading ammunition brand Hornady to a growing list of partners in Trailblazers in Conservation, an initiative to help the hunting community rise to the challenges of a changing world.
If sporting lifestyles - and the conservation successes long funded through hunting - are to thrive in the future, then today's sportsmen must find a way to balance climate change, increased energy development, unmitigated urban sprawl, wildlife disease outbreaks, conflicting policies and a host of other challenges.
Through Trailblazers in Conservation, Hornady is sponsoring the Club's work for better scientific wildlife management, balanced policies, hunter advocacy and broader understanding of the applications and benefits of sustainable-use conservation.
"The Club has stood for sound environmental policy since Theodore Roosevelt founded Boone and Crockett in 1887," said Marc Mondavi, vice president of communications for the Club. "Looking forward, we see a need for hunting, wildlife and conservation to have even stronger representation in Washington D.C."
"We are honored to support the work of Boone and Crocket Club and the initiatives supported by its members," said Steve Hornady, company president. "Our hunting heritage faces ongoing challenges and we want to ensure the stability of tomorrow's wildlife and habitat. "
Hornady joins Boyt Harness Co., Buck Knives, Bass Pro Shops, Swarovski Optik, and Nosler as the initial partners in Trailblazers in Conservation.
