WASHINGTON –-(Ammoland.com)- Tony Jackson, former director of external affairs for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency, has joined the staff of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership as the group’s director of communications.

Jackson will oversee the full range of the TRCP’s communications efforts, including advocacy-oriented messaging approaches, social media and online engagement, brand awareness and strategic planning for all of the organization’s communications channels.

Jackson holds a law degree from Boston College Law School, along with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a master’s degree in journalism from Penn State University. During his tenure with the USDA, he was in charge of media relations and congressional relations for FSA. Jackson also served as counsel and assistant counsel for the Agriculture Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Even more than his remarkable resume, Tony brings exceptional innovation, creativity and enthusiasm to the TRCP,” said TRCP President and CEO Whit Fosburgh. “His impressive credentials and ingenuity will enhance our ability to advance federal policy that promotes sound natural resources management, the conservation of fish and wildlife and their habitats, and opportunities for all Americans to hunt and fish.”

“I am thrilled about the opportunity to join the TRCP,” Jackson said. “I look forward to amplifying the work the TRCP is doing to effect federal policy and funding in order to preserve our nation’s natural heritage.”

    1. Any form of land conservation coming from a progressive group should throw up red flags. State and Fed Gov combined currently own 33% of all US lands. I fear that some day, gov will buy up all the lands, promise hunters great things, and then kick everyone out with consensus driven NGO’s.

    2. Oh, and what is TRCP’s position on Global Warming…er…Climate Change? Well let’s see…straight from their 2013 Policy Agenda:

      Global climate change threatens to disrupt generations of plant, fish and wildlife evolution and the abundance and well-being of species and their habitats. Gradually increasing worldwide temperatures will result in changes in amounts and patterns of precipitation, frequency and intensity of weather events, distribution and duration of drought, levels of snowpack and when it melts, runoff and flooding patterns and the timing of animal and plant life-cycles. These factors alone and combined can affect plant growth, structure and distribution, as well as species’ abilities to reproduce and survive. Sportsmen have been the first to experience the repercussions of climate change as declining populations of game species result in shortened seasons and fewer hunting permits. If fishing or hunting exists in the lifetime of our children and theirs, it may take on an entirely new face.

      How we address the challenges of global climate change now will dictate whether future generations will continue to enjoy our time-honored sporting traditions. Government agencies must work to mitigate the effects of such change by protecting crucial habitat and adapting management programs that conserve fish and wildlife populations.

      Action Items

      – Urge the Obama administration and Congress to increase the annual appropriation to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the State Wildlife Grants Program to fund the full implementation of congressionally mandated State Wildlife Action Plans that address the challenge of climate change.

      Hmmm, I say sumptin’ smells suspicious. Do your research, folks. Otherwise, wilderness human no-go zones and oppressive carbon taxes are in our future.
