Wildlife and sport fish restoration program benefits state wildlife management areas
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is reminding you that if you’ve ever purchased firearms or ammunition, bows, arrows, fishing lures, rods and reels, hunting or fishing licenses, or fueled up your boat, then you are part of the most successful effort to conserve fish and wildlife in America – the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration (WSFR) Programs.
The effort has resulted in millions of acres of habitat saved and near miraculous population increases in several species of game and sport fish throughout the nation. This year marks the 75th Anniversary of these landmark programs – the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act and the Sport Fish Restoration Act – which collect an excise fee on certain hunting and fishing equipment that is then returned to the states for fish and wildlife projects
