Thriving people in a livable world. That's what sustainability is really all about: People everywhere able to live a quality life without sacrificing the natural resources that future generations will depend on.

When you think of conservation, what issues come to mind: Habitat loss? Energy consumption? Urban sprawl? How about human population growth? While it may not be the first on your list, our growing numbers do underlie many of the conservation challenges we face today. The Izaak Walton League works to raise awareness of this issue and promote integrated, common sense solutions that tackle the relationships between resource conservation and population growth.
