Kay Ivey, Governor

As far as I’m concerned, no place on earth compares to our great State of Alabama, especially if you love the outdoors.

Our natural resources are abundant, and our wonderful natural habitat is rich with a diversity of animal and plant species unparalleled east of the Mississippi River. Alabamians have choices for outdoor adventure that range from chasing rabbits in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains to reeling in big largemouth bass from our world-renowned rivers, reservoirs and lakes throughout the state.

Approximately 1.7 million people enjoy our diverse outdoor recreation opportunities and contribute greatly to Alabama’s booming economy with an economic impact of about $3 billion.

However, our great abundance of game and fish does not happen by chance. The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) is tasked with promoting, enhancing and protecting our natural resources, wildlife and fisheries. To fund that significant task, WFF depends on the sale of hunting and fishing licenses. Those license sales determine the matching federal funds available through the Sportfish Restoration and Wildlife Restoration acts.

If you enjoy bird watching or watching other wildlife species, the enhancements aimed at the popular species like white-tailed deer and wild turkey also benefit songbirds and a variety of non-game animals. If you love Alabama’s great outdoors, consider buying a hunting or fishing license to ensure future generations continue to enjoy that natural wealth.

The Alabama Black Belt is where I’m from and where the great outdoors dominates our cherished way of life. As Governor, Alabama has a story I love to tell.

There is, indeed, no place like Sweet Home Alabama.
