SITKA announces new initiatives using science and stewardship to fuel natural systems through its grant program.
SITKA is calling for Ecosystem Grant Applications under a banner of new program priorities to continue to support conservation impacts made not only by large organizations but also by grassroots efforts led by passionate individuals. These grants will continue to fund projects that improve the state and function of an ecosystem through habitat restoration, biodiversity, conservation and working landscapes, while also supporting the growth of the hunting experience through access, education, and mentorship. A brand-new initiative will be working across sectors in a shared stewardship effort to prioritize whole ecosystems through collaborative conservation.
Lindsey Davis is the new Director of Conservation and Advocacy at SITKA Gear leading this important program which has been a SITKA initiative since 2019. Davis comes to SITKA with a background in conservation and advocacy with a diverse array of constituents including ranchers, farmers, underserved communities, native tribes, education institutions, businesses and policy experts. She has worked in the environmental and outdoor sectors for nearly two decades and serves on several boards across the industry in addition to being a volunteer citizen scientist. “I am thrilled to be working with the SITKA team and building upon their conservation legacy. SITKA’s focus on prioritizing whole ecosystems stands out not only in the hunting space, but in the outdoor industry as a whole. Our newly refined program pillars and priorities will allow SITKA to continue to make an impact in protecting wildlife and its habitats, while also ensuring the future of hunting and building new partnerships in the conservation arena,” said Davis.
As the leader in the industry, SITKA’s perspective is about more than increasing game populations. The Ecosystem Grant Program uses science and stewardship to fuel natural systems, and strives to actively give back to the people and initiatives ensuring our natural resources and ways of life are protected and accessible for future generations. Through collaborative partnerships, SITKA’s efforts have helped numerous organizations further the key research, education and advocacy that bolsters conservation work nationwide.
