Located on Alaska’s North Slope, the 22.8 million acres of the National Petroleum Reserve comprise the largest single block of federally managed land in the United States.

• The habitat provided by the reserve supports abundant migratory bird populations and the largest caribou herd in Alaska as well as numerous other game and non-game species.
• The Bureau of Land Management is currently developing an Integrated Activity Plan and associated Environmental Impact Statement to plan for the future management of the reserve.
• The TRCP supports Alternative B-2, which proposes a no lease designation  that would account for protection of habitat on a mere 13 percent of the 22.8 million-acre NPR-A while still allowing for future oil and gas development in the majority of the reserve.

Founded in 2002, the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership is a non-profit organization working to guarantee all Americans quality places to hunt and fish.

T.R.’S VISION
In 1912 Theodore Roosevelt said, “There can be no greater issue than that of conservation in this country.” While in the political arena, he succeeded in making conservation a top tier national issue. T.R. had the foresight to address these issues still so significant to sportsmen today, understanding that if we want to ensure critical habitat, special hunting grounds and secret fishing holes will be around for future generations, we must plan carefully today.

THE TRCP MISSION
In order to guarantee all Americans quality places to hunt and fish, we strengthen laws, policies and practices affecting fish and wildlife conservation by leading partnerships that influence decision makers.

TRCP / BASS PRO SHOPS JOIN FORCES
In early 2012, the TRCP joined forces with Bass Pro Shops and Steven Rinella of the hit TV show “MeatEater” to produce a video series highlighting conservation issues key to our fish, wildlife and hunting and angling traditions. Each episode of “TRCP’s Conservation Field Notes” follows Rinella to far-flung destinations where he talks about critical conservation issues related to the hunts and regions featured on “MeatEater.”
