Contact: John Culclasure, Southeastern States Assistant Director
On November 17, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) Senior Director of Midwestern States and Fisheries Policy Chris Horton, and Southeastern States Assistant Director John Culclasure, were guest panelists on a University of South Florida Honors College Hunting and Conservation Panel.
Horton and Culclasure spoke to students about the work of CSF protecting and advancing sporting traditions in Florida specifically, as well as CSF’s work at the federal level and in other states across the country. Topics discussed included, among others, the American System of Conservation Funding; the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation; hunter recruitment, retention and reactivation; active forest management; Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper Management; and the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.
Along with partners from Ducks Unlimited and the National Wild Turkey Federation, Horton and Culclasure also fielded questions from students about careers in wildlife conservation and spoke about seminal laws in United States conservation history.
CSF would like to thank Ms. Lauren Roberts of the University of South Florida for organizing the panel discussion, as well as the students for their robust participation in the discussion and interest in conservation.
