According to the Georgia Trapper’s association,There are more wild furbearers in the United States today than there was 100 years ago.
Government quotas and strict conservation practices keep wildlife, including furbearers, at optimum levels.
There are no furbearing animals in the United States or Canada which are endangered or threatened by fur harvesting today.
Millions of North Americans depend on fur harvesting for their livelihood. These people have a vested interest in protecting the natural environment.
Natural fur, used in coats and other garments, is a renewable resource.
Nothing is wasted in the production of a wild fur garment. Furbearers provide food, organic fertilizer, medicines, and other biodegradable products.
Conversely, synthetic materials exhaust our limited supply of oil and other non-renewable resources.
Sound wildlife management programs ensure the necessary supply of natural wild fur for today’s needs and those of tomorrow.
Georgia Trappers Association Scholarship Program
The Georgia Trappers Association scholarship program offers an annual scholarship of $500 – $1000 to assist qualified students who are resident’s of the state of Georgia and are pursuing a degree in game biology or a related field of study at an accredited institution of learning. Scholarship awards may be used only for tuition, educational fees, books and supplies.
If you haven’t renewed your membership recently, now is a good time. Trappers all over the country are facing extinction and Georgia is no exception. We need the support of everyone to keep trapping a viable outdoor activity for the future. Many states are losing their trapping rights a little at the time. Georgia could be next
if we don’t pay attention to our sport.
Cost is $25.00.
