Robert Bentley, Governor

Alabama’s great outdoors is a treasure that is enjoyed by residents and visitors. From hunting and fishing to birding and hiking, an abundance of recreational opportunities awaits Alabamians and the many nonresidents who visit our great state.

Alabama is in the top tier of states in terms of biodiversity and habitat. Northeast Alabama offers great vistas, waterfalls and miles of hiking and biking trails. Heading south to the coastal plain of the Gulf of Mexico, residents and visitors have abundant options that include hunting, fishing, camping, wildlife watching and enjoying the sugar-sand beaches on our coast.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) is charged with managing the state’s wildlife and fisheries resources. What most people don’t realize is the ADCNR does not receive any General Fund money. The work of conserving our wildlife and natural resources is accomplished through funding from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses and matching funds from the federal government through the Sport Fish Restoration Act and Wildlife Restoration Act.

Each year, Alabama’s wildlife and fisheries officials set aside a portion of their budget for research to gain the best information available to manage our wild game species. While the research most often focuses on the popular big-game species of white-tailed deer and Eastern wild turkey, what’s good for deer and turkeys is invariably good for almost all wildlife. The goal of management practices is to balance what is best for our wildlife and provide the most opportunity for hunters and anglers to take advantage of those resources.

More than 1.7 million people participate in outdoors-related activities in Alabama annually with an economic impact of almost $3 billion. This translates into jobs for Alabamians, which continues to be one of my main goals as Governor of this great state.
