The Environmental Protection Agency released the final Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment for the proposed Pebble Mine project, identifying major threats to bristol bayfish and game habitat posed by massive mining proposals in the region.

 The TRCP joined the 1,000-strong coalition urging the EPA to use its authority under the Clean Water Act to protect Bristol Bay's fish and wildlife resources.

Many of the most recognizable brands in hunting and fishing have expressed their wishes to protect Alaska's Bristol Bay.

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

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.

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.

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.”
