Wildlife banquet in BismarckThe North Dakota Wildlife Federation will discuss the issue of the growth of commercialization of wildlife during its 73rd annual convention Friday and Saturday at the Doublewood Inn in Bismarck.
The “Commercialization of Wildlife” forum will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday and will be led by Jim Posewitz, director of “Orion, The Hunter’s Institute.” The forum is open to the public.
“Every time dollars are attached to a pheasant rooster or a whitetail buck, wildlife in the North Dakota public trust is diminished,” said Clarence Bina, the new executive director of the North Dakota Wildlife Federation.
The convention agenda also includes discussions on other issues such as invasive aquatic species, the new farm bill, “Report All Poachers” report and global warming impact on wildlife.
The North Dakota Wildlife Federation is an affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation, America’s largest conservation organization with more than 5 million members. Wildlife banquet in Bismarck 20080113
