Climate change is real. Milder winters, warmer shoulder seasons, wildfire, drought and flood all impact the sportsmen and women In The Heart of the Rockies and the relationship they have with the land. It is changing the way they hunt and fish and the opportunities their children will have in the future.
The new short film from Conservation Hawks digs into this most important issue and rings the bell for all sportsmen and women to take action.
To contact your elected officials and tell them you’re concerned about climate change and the ways it is impacting your own relationship with the places you hunt and fish, please visit: http://www.conservationhawks.org/take-action-1.
From the Conservation Hawks: “The northern Rockies are known far and wide for their majestic peaks, gorgeous rivers, abundant wildlife and amazing natural beauty. At the same time, the area offers some of the finest hunting and fishing in the Lower 48. In the Heart of the Rockies showcases this incredible landscape through the eyes of the sportsmen and women who know it best, including elk hunter Craig Mathews, upland bird hunters Dave Perkins, Nancy Mackinnon and Phoebe Bean, ice fisherman Hal Herring, and fly fishers Hilary Hutcheson and Todd Tanner.
In the Heart of the Rockies also shines a bright light on the threat the region faces from our changing climate. Fish and wildlife are impacted by the record high temperatures, diminishing snowpacks, longer droughts, dying forests and extreme wildfires associated with human-caused climate change. Now it’s time for America’s patriotic hunters & anglers to stand up and protect these iconic landscapes for our children and grandchildren.”
