The International Wildlife Conservation Council will have their next meeting to discuss pertinent wildlife matters on June 19th in Atlanta, Georgia.   The meeting is open to the public, but attendees must sign up before June 14th to attend.

The Council will provide advice and recommendations to the Federal Government, through the Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, and is focused on increasing the public’s awareness domestically regarding the conservation, wildlife law enforcement, and economic benefits that result from United States citizens traveling to foreign nations to engage in hunting.

Additionally, the Council shall advise the Secretary on the benefits international hunting has on foreign wildlife and habitat conservation, anti-poaching and illegal wildlife trafficking programs, and other ways in which international hunting benefits human populations in these areas.
