Conservation Organizations

With all of the pressure on our fishing resources, particularly those in the salt, and the "fishable" habitat being slowly whittled away in one form or another by officials possessing no credible basis or reason for their motions (other than $$$), I was just wondering how many of us belong to conservation-minded organizations that aim to do something about all of this idiocy. Although I'm currently living in Georgia, soon to move South to Florida, I'm a Jersey boy and am steaming over the striper issues at present; fortunately, I can contact the right people through the CCA to at least voice this to the appropriate parties. Getting involved with this kind of thing is something that anyone having the time should seriously look into; no one is going to fight our battles for us!

Off my soap box now... comments?

Getting Involved

Durring a recent slowdown in work, I jumped into a project about 40 miles from where I live. I am now awaiting word to be able to start a field research stint in this area. I was glad to see how easy it was to "get involved" in this. Although I know all projects dont go this smooth, there are plenty of things that people can do to help the cause of better fisheries. If every angler committed to 2 weekends a year to some cause for the betterment of fish, great strides could be made. These might include beach or stream clean-up, habitat restoration, conservation group membership or support, education for young people, etc.
Chris, I agree, this is serious stuff. Every angler should make it a part of his/her total fishing experience.
