The North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, renowned as the most effective conservation system worldwide, stands on a foundation of several fundamental principles. At its core, it places a profound value on wildlife as a public trust resource, emphasizing that these natural treasures are held in stewardship for the benefit of all citizens, present and future. Additionally, it champions science-based management, ensuring policies rely on empirical data for adaptive and informed conservation. This model also acknowledges the crucial role of regulated hunting and fishing as not only traditional recreational activities but as indispensable tools for the effective management and financial support of conservation initiatives.
