The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation remains opposed to the wholesale disposal, sale or transfer of federal land holdings. Federal public lands comprise vital habitat for elk and other wildlife species. They are where we hunt, fish, camp, hike, ride and recreate. Transferring ownership of federal lands to states is not a solution to federal land management issues; it is a shell game to avoid the heavy lifting of establishing proactive land management policies in the US.
Below, you’ll find an interview with Mark Lambrecht, RMEF Director of Government Affairs for the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation explaining the details behind the public land transfer as well as the reasons behind RMEF’s position on the matter.
