The NWTF and the CWTF are coming together for the advancement of wild turkeys.
The National Wild Turkey Federation and the Canadian Wild Turkey Federation have gotten together to sign a memorandum of understanding. This is an agreement between the two organizations to work together to reach joint goals. This is all coming in the CWTF's third year as an organization.
The CWTF's initiatives in Canada are very much in alignment with the NWTF's. Currently, the NWTF's goals include conserving four million acres, recruiting 1.5 million hunters, and opening 500,00 acres of quality habitat for hunting. With these to organizations working together the goal is that now much more obtainable.
In tangent with the NWTF, the CWTF's goals are very similar:
- Promote the establishment, restoration, preservation and sustainable management of wild turkeys and their habitats.
- develop programs and engage in projects to establish, restore, preserve, and enhance wild turkey hunting practices, traditions and heritage.
- Promote responsible wild turkey hunting practices, traditions and heritage.
- Work with Governments, organizations and others to develop programs and engage in projects to protect and enhance wildlife habitat.
- Promote conservation, hunting, fishing, and other outdoor and wildlife oriented activities.
- Host, sponsor, and promote education, social, exhibition and other events for members and the public.
So far in 2016, the CWTF has hosted 12 banquets to raise awareness. It has developed chapters and gathered 1,700 members all across Canada and also worked with its partners for the advancement of hunting.
This union will have an amazing impact on conservation and hunting throughout North America.
