Episode 3 – Secretary of Interior – The Honorable Ryan Zinke
We were honored to have the opportunity to sit down with Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke just minutes before he signed the historic Secretarial Order 3362 for big game corridors and winter range. We talk about the Secretary’s morning experience helping MDF with the urban deer transplant project, the department’s focus on restoring sagebrush habitats, his focus on the “frontlines” of the department to work on the landscape, and more. MDF President/CEO Miles Moretti also joins us to describe how MDF will be able to be even more engaged in restoration projects through this initiative. Finally, the secretary describes his day at the Western Hunting & Conservation Expo and the importance of getting kids and families together in the outdoors.
The Mule Deer Foundation is the only conservation group in North America dedicated to restoring, improving and protecting mule deer and black-tailed deer and their habitat, with a focus on science and program efficiency. MDF is a strong voice for hunters in access, wildlife management and conservation policy issues. MDF acknowledges regulated hunting as a viable management component and is committed to recruitment and retention of youth into the shooting sports and conservation.
