Arizona Edition: Recruiting Hunters and Anglers to Fight Climate Change

Arizona Edition

Climate change and drought actually alter the environment and how it can be used. A new report says the people who know that best are the hunters and anglers who use the lands most.

The National Wildlife Federation report, A Hunter's and Angler's Guide to Climate Change, highlights how climate change is impacting outdoor recreation and describes a partnership with hunters and anglers who see first-hand the impacts of drought and wildfires on the lands they use.

Host Lou Gum speaks with Aaron Kindle, director of sporting advocacy for the National Wildlife Foundation.
