Overview
Sportsmen for Responsible Energy Development (SFRED) was created in 2007 to leverage existing resources within the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership (TRCP), National Wildlife Federation (NWF), and Trout Unlimited (TU) and to better coordinate the three organization’s ongoing advocacy efforts concerning oil and gas development on Western public lands. Through this grant the three organizations will work to reform federal oil and gas leasing practices to ensure wildlife and fish habitat is better protected. The three groups will also seek to broaden their coalition by gaining the support of other hunting and fishing organizations for the coalition's goals and objectives.

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.
for the Energy Initiative Program  
Hunting and fishing organizations are exceptionally credible Western voices. This grant would support the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership efforts to protect important fish and wildlife habitat on Western public lands from being leased for oil and gas development. The Partnership would work with hunting and fishing organzations to protect important habitat and ensure that recently adopted Department of the Interior oil and gas leasing reforms are not weakened.
