The Remington Outdoor Company and the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership have announced plans to launch a new partnership that's designed to highlight and strengthen the connection hunters and shooters have to the country's outdoor resources.
"The Remington Outdoor Company exemplifies our nation's outdoor lifestyle and is engaged like no other company in actively upholding sportsmen's ability to hunt and shoot, " said TRCP President and CEO Whit Fosburgh. "We at the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership are thrilled to be forging a partnership with Remington that will promote hunting access, a conservation ethic and an overall sporting lifestyle to sportsmen and -women. "
One of the goals of the partnership is to expand hunting access for the nation's hunters. It will also focus on strengthening and diversifying sportsmen's awareness of issues affecting wildlife habitat conservation.
"TRCP and the Remington Outdoor Company recognize our significant obligation to responsibly manage our natural resources. Together, we stand at the vanguard, defending our outdoor, uniquely American lifestyle, " said Remington CEO George Kollitides. "Like the TRCP, preserving America's distinctive hunting grounds and fishing holes for future generations is a top priority—no, an obligation—for Remington. As the foremost manufacturer of firearms and ammunition, we are a staunch supporter of and partner with the TRCP. "
Founded in 2002, the TRCP is a growing coalition of hunting, angling and conservation groups and individual grassroots partners, working together to preserve the traditions of hunting and fishing by strengthening federal policy and funding for conservation and access.
