As part of his duties as Secretary for the Colorado Chapter of The Wildlife Society (CCTWS), CNHP Zoologist Rob Schorr spent the last full week of February at the CCTWS Annual Meeting. The theme of this year’s meeting was “From the Cradle to the Grave: Recruiting and Retaining Natural Resource Recreationists.”
The meeting was hosted with the Colorado/Wyoming American Fisheries Society and was attended by over 325 wildlife and fisheries biology professionals. The plenary session included speakers from the Colorado Division of Wildlife, Wyoming Game and Fish, The Humane Society, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, but the most-anticipated speaker, Ted Nugent of rock-and-roll and television fame, presented a unique perspective on the value and importance of retaining hunters and anglers.
