How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Council met to determine recommendations for the Secretary of the Interior on the benefits that international recreational hunting has on foreign wildlife and habitat conservation, anti-poaching and illegal wildlife trafficking programs, and human populations in the areas where such activity takes place.
How is membership balanced?*Council membership, balance, and individual perspective and expertise were in large part dictated by the Council charter itself. The Secretary of the Interior appointed members, selecting from nominations received from the public. The Council consisted of no more than 18 discretionary and 4 ex officio members. (a) Ex officio members: (1) Secretary of the Interior or designated DOI representatives; (2) Secretary of State or designated Department of State representatives; (b) The remaining discretionary members were selected from among, but not limited to, the entities listed below. These members had to be senior-level representatives of their organizations and/or have the authority to represent their designated constituency: (1) Wildlife and habitat conservation/management organizations; (2) U.S. hunters actively engaged in international and/or domestic hunting conservation; (3) The firearms or ammunition manufacturing industry; (4) Archery and/or hunting sports industry; and (5) Tourism, outfitter, and/or guide industries related to international hunting.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Council met approximately once or twice annually, and at such other times as designated by the Designated Federal Officer. During Fiscal Year (FY) 2020, the Council met only once.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The International Wildlife Conservation Council's establishment was necessary to help inform the Department of the Interior and the Department of State about their programs that influence international hunting opportunities and international wildlife conservation. The hunting community has a unique and important role in the history and ongoing efforts of conservation both domestically and internationally. The Council's membership represented a diverse collection of viewpoints required by the Council's mission and its purpose was to help improve the Interior and State's delivery of international wildlife conservation programs and international hunting opportunities.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings were open to the public.
Recommendation RemarksThe Council met once and made no recommendations in FY 2020. The Council terminated on December 21, 2019, when its charter expired and will not be renewed.
