GAR WARS! Conserve Native Biodiversity! Join the discussion 7/8/2015 Noon EST

  
There’s been a lot of recent discussion regarding bowfin, gars, and other “rough fish” in the context of bowfishing (often wasteful harvest of native species), management (regulated harvest), and conservation. All three of these activities need not exist in conflict with each other (except wasteful harvest). We are raising awareness as to the value of these species in some cases, but there’s still much work to be done!

With conservation and managed harvest (including bowfishing) in mind, we are pleased to bring you the  “Gar Wars” Twitter chat via The Nature Conservancy! We invite ALL interested individuals, groups, etc to join the discussion on July 8, at noon EST.

Please share with others who may be interested, and we hope to further raise awareness as to the conservation value of these oft-maligned ancient native species!
