On September 25th at the annual meeting of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) in St. Paul, Minnesota, the states’ directors passed several resolutions including one to adopt and support implementation of the Fish and Wildlife Relevancy Roadmap. The Roadmap is a non-prescriptive guide designed to help states overcome barriers to engaging and serving broader constituencies. The Roadmap was built over the past 18 months by five strategy teams made up of state, federal, and provincial agency staff along with representatives of conservation non-governmental organizations and outdoor and natural resource industries. Wildlife Management Institute (WMI) President, Dr. Steve Williams, and Nevada Department of Wildlife Director, Tony Wasley, oversaw development. In addition to adopting the Roadmap, the state directors approved a Multi-state Conservation Grant of nearly $150,000 to WMI to support implementation of the Roadmap beginning in January, 2020. WMI staff is reaching out to states to identify agencies ready to enhance conservation through broader engagement.
