The Hunter Conservationist Paradox

This year, October 27th marked the 157th birthday of former president and conservationist Theodore Roosevelt, a beloved national figure and pioneer in the world of land conservation, whose legacy has lasted long after his death. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission recently published an article celebrating his achievements as a conservationist. From the article: “[Theodore Roosevelt] was a naturalist with a deep love for America’s natural beauty and resources who embraced conservation ideals throughout his administration. He protected 230 million acres of land and created 150 national forests, the first 51 federal bird reservations, five national parks and the first four national game preserves. The very first National Wildlife Refuge he established, Pelican Island, is in Vero Beach.”

Theodore Roosevelt was also a hunter, and it is his legacy as a sportsman-naturalist that serves as the best example of one of the great (and often misunderstood) paradoxes of wildlife conservation: Those with a passion for the hunt also have a passion to protect.

At Fay Ranches, we share Roosevelt’s love of the land, of hunting and fishing, and we are compelled as sportsmen by a deep obligation to protect it for future generations.
