Forestville, WI. January 27, 2017. The Future Angler Foundation (FAF) supports the efforts to grow the sport of recreational fishing by “Creating New Anglers.” We encourage all of our partners and supporters to sign up for the February Webinar hosted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation (RBFF). Information from RBFF follows:
“Let’s kick off 2017 by ramping up our efforts to achieve 60 million anglers in 60 months. We can only reach this goal by all working together to recruit, retain and reactivate (R3) anglers and boaters. Increases in participation mean more fishing license and boat registration purchases, more customers for our industry partners and more funds for state conservation efforts.”
“Not sure where to start? We can help! RBFF and the Aquatic Resources Education Association (AREA) recently released the Recommendations and Strategic Tools for Effective Angler Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation (R3) Efforts to help you get started.”
“Please join us on Wednesday, February 22 at 2:00pm Eastern to hear Matt Dunfee, Program Manager at the Wildlife Management Institute and thought leader in R3 programs discuss:
- The AREA-RBFF R3 Project.
- Project accomplishments.
- The Seven Recommendations for Effective Angler R3 Efforts.
- Next steps.
After participating in this webinar, you’ll have a better understanding of the Angler R3 Recommendations and how to utilize the tools to assess your angler R3 efforts and address gaps to improve the effectiveness.”
The FAF supports the efforts of RBFF and AREA to grow the sport of recreational fishing and boating.
