WINNIPEG - The province is investing in hunter education and safety.
“Manitobans are bringing new-found passion and appreciation for the world-class wildlife and fish resources this province has to offer,” said agriculture and resource development minister Blaine Pedersen. “This endowment will provide perpetual funding for hunter education and safety programming, and ensure that resources are available to sustain and improve this programming for generations of Manitobans to come.”
A gift of $2 million is being committed to endow the Hunter Education and Safety Fund, to be administered by The Winnipeg Foundation.
It will support the Manitoba Wildlife Federation in activities that educate, train and recruit hunters and enhance safe and sustainable hunting and trapping of wildlife populations within Manitoba.
