Bill Sponsorship: Global Conservation Act
Source: H6038/S3356
Requires a report to Congress on existing US international conservation policies and programs to determine the extent to which such programs are:
  • addressing natural resource challenges to ensure healthy and sustainable supplies of water, wildlife, fish, forests, plants, and other critical resources;
  • advancing US foreign policy priorities in areas such as security, democratization, sustainable food production, and clean water;
  • enhancing economic and wildlife conservation benefits derived from properly managed international hunting and angling tourism;
  • addressing poaching, illegal logging, fishing, and wildlife trafficking;
  • Establishes the Interagency Working Group on Global Conservation to strengthen the capacity of the US to collaborate with other countries, international organizations, the private sector, and private voluntary organizations to conserve natural resources and enhance biodiversity.
  • Working Group will establish a International Conservation Strategy to provide a comprehensive plan of action that identifies specific and measurable benchmarks, goals, and time frames
  • Prohibits any provision in this Act from being construed as restricting, limiting, or otherwise impairing properly managed recreational hunting and angling, or (2) the ability of any foreign jurisdiction or authority to authorize regulated programs supporting wildlife for local consumption and commercialization.
