Wildlife Conservation Issues in Texas: What does the Future Hold?
Texas is blessed with a vast array of habitats and species. In fact, when one
compares all of the states, Texas is frequently in the top three. However, complex
and daunting issues like emerging diseases, climate change, urbanization,
insufficient land use planning, emerging energy production industries, declining
conservation funding, etc. are putting intense pressures on our state’s wildlife
populations. But the conservation community has faced seemingly insurmountable
challenges and acted with conviction in the past. The conservation community rose
to the challenge in the 1930s and again in the 1970s. With dedication, we can rise
to the challenge again and secure a solid future for wildlife of our great state.
