Arkansas Backcountry Hunters and Anglers Contributes $5,000 to Arkansas Game and Fish for Black Bear Research

Arkansas Backcountry Hunters and Anglers has made a donation of $5,000 to support black bear research efforts undertaken by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC).

This contribution, sourced from the ticket sales of the 2024 Black Bear Bonanza, underscores Arkansas BHA's commitment to wildlife conservation and preservation of natural habitats in Arkansas. The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is responsible for the conservation and management of Arkansas's fish and wildlife resources. Through research, education, and regulation, AGFC works to sustain healthy populations of fish and wildlife, provide outdoor recreational opportunities, and promote conservation ethics among Arkansans. By partnering with AGFC, Arkansas BHA aims to advance research initiatives vital for the sustainable management of black bear populations across the state. 

The Arkansas BHA chapter is thrilled to collaborate with the AGFC in their essential efforts to study and protect black bears in our state. Black bears play a crucial role in Arkansas's ecological balance, and comprehensive research is imperative for their long-term conservation. The funds provided by Arkansas BHA will support AGFC's scientific endeavors, including habitat assessment, population monitoring, and conservation measures.

Through collaborative initiatives like this, Arkansas BHA is reaffirming its dedication to safeguarding wildlife and preserving the rich outdoor heritage of Arkansas.
