Washington BHA Comments in Support of Using Volunteer Hunters to Control Non-Native Mountain Goat Population in Olympic National Park




  • The AEP Minister announced plans to de-list and/or transfer 39 percent of existing parks to private partnerships to save $5 million. We lead the hunting and angling opposition to these plans, as it removes protections on existing habitat, as well as enabling the sales of these public lands.
  • We also mobilized a media and letter-writing campaign to raise awareness in response to recently announced public land sales and focused the public's attention on providing feedback to their local elected representatives, in addition to the AEP minister and Alberta premier.
  • Pivoting from our in-person workshops, funded by the Cabela’s Canada Outdoor Fund, into online webinars has been a huge success, and it has helped in membership growth and delivering quality content to our members and others.
