Anglers for Conservation goal is to build a new generation of marine stewards.
Anglers for Conservation, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, works within recreational fishing communities to create a new generation of marine stewards by establishing Marine Stewardship and Hook Kids on Fishing Programs. These programs focus on providing extended short and long-term classroom and in-the-field fishing, boating and marine conservation education and training to youth and their parents. Through funding from individual donors and grants from foundations and government, Anglers For Conservation offers its programs to various segments of the general public in the community. OUR OBJECTIVES INCLUDE:
The goal of the Angler Education program is to educate the general public in basic fishing skills and use of conservation-minded methods in order to protect the fish, habitat and angler.
Collecing recreational fishing data from the general public, compiling that data into accessible databases to use for analysis, and to make the general public aware of any findings.
Restoring marine/estuarine habitats to improve fishing opportunities; making citizens aware of the dangers that cause loss, the impact on natural habitats, and the value of restoration.
