The guns and hunting industries are contributing significant support to wildlife, according to this National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) infographic.
America’s ducks, deer, elk and turkey should all take a moment to say thank you to the hunters and shooting enthusiasts in the country, because if it weren’t for them, the environmental situation could be a lot worse.
The NSSF shared this infographic focusing on the impact the shooting and hunting industries have had on wildlife over the years. The obvious figures that jump out at you first: the system has provided nearly $9 million to wildlife conservation since 1976.
By the NSSF’s request, we’re doing our part to let the world know about America’s original and largest contributors to conservation: hunters, shooters and the firearms industry.
