Wild Sheep Foundation Announces Thinhorn Sheep Summit II
Bozeman, Montana – November 4, 2016: Following the success and outcomes from the first-ever Thinhorn Sheep Summit I held April 2014 in Richmond, British Columbia, the Wild Sheep Foundation (WSF) Conservation Committee will convene and host Thinhorn Sheep Summit II on April 11-12, 2017 in Anchorage, Alaska. “The purpose of this second summit will be to discuss and evaluate priority action items for Dall’s sheep and Stone’s sheep that were identified at Summit I,” stated Gray N. Thornton, WSF President and CEO. “Significant investments of time, funding, and focus have occurred since Summit I, and WSF believes it is appropriate to critically evaluate progress and existing obstacles to thinhorn sheep conservation and management,” added Thornton.
“More than 70 Dall’s sheep and Stone’s sheep managers, researchers, conservation advocates, guide/outfitter representatives, resident sportsmen and women, First Nations representatives, students and other interested stakeholders convened for 2 days in April 2014,” according to WSF Senior Conservation Director and Thinhorn Sheep Program Lead Kevin Hurley. “WSF anticipates 75-100 stakeholders for Thinhorn Sheep Summit II, from Alaska, British Columbia, Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories, and beyond,” added Hurley.
