Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership
For The Energy Initiative Program
Type of SupportGeneral Support/Program
This grant supports the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership's efforts to protect western habitat important to hunters and anglers from the impacts of fossil energy development. The Partnership will educate policymakers about the energy leasing reforms that are necessary to protect habitat, enlist new hunting and fishing organizations in its coalition, and work with the media to publish stories about the need to protect habitat from the impacts of fossil energy development. The Partnership will also highlight several important wildlife areas on public lands where wildlife is at risk from fossil energy development and propose leasing reforms.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Energy Initiative Program
Sportsmen are a credible, respected voice in the West, able to influence the decisions of federal public land managers that affect fish and wildlife habitat. This renewal grant would support the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership’s efforts to protect important fish and wildlife habitat on western public lands from being developed for oil and gas. The Partnership would work closely with other hunting and fishing organizations, most notably the National Wildlife Federation and Trout Unlimited, to protect fragile habitat. It would also ensure the Department of Interior fully implements oil and gas leasing reforms that have been languishing in the agency for almost two years.
