The Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation (SWF) is holding its 88th Annual Convention February 16-18 in Regina.

Hunters, anglers, and other conservationists from across the province will gather to discuss issues, participate in workshops, debate resolutions, develop policy, review SWF program updates, and attend presentations on wildlife, fisheries and enforcement. The SWF will be conducting a fundraising event and two awards banquets recognizing member and branch achievements and milestones over the three evenings.

“Our Convention is the annual premier opportunity for our members to discuss the many issues facing Saskatchewan’s wildlife and fisheries resources and the outdoor activities that are enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of Saskatchewan residents every year”, says SWF President Heath Dreger.

This year’s theme is ‘Our Province, Our Role, Our Future’. We will focus on identifying and developing partnerships for sustainable wildlife populations into the future.

“We’re thrilled to have Dr. Alistair Bath provide our keynote address this year. Dr. Bath is an Associate Professor at Memorial University in Newfoundland, and has more than 25 years of experience in human-wildlife conflicts and in human dimension issues in natural resource management,” continues Dreger, “In addition, we are very excited to have the Hon. Scott Moe, Minster of Environment, who will be our guest speaker Thursday night”.
