The Texas Wildlife Association works with hunters and private landowners to conserve the natural land that wildlife live on. The Texas Wildlife Association helped in passing legislation that protects the owners of private land by allowing landowners to retain their agricultural land tax valuations. In turn, the private landowners are required to sustain strict wildlife management. By allowing private landowners to keep their agriculture tax values the livestock and wildlife that live on the land have a quality habitat provided to them. The Texas Wildlife Association has also worked on other projects to help the landowners by providing landowner incentive programs for adhering to wildlife management. The private landowners are the real stewards of wildlife management and the future of wildlife depends on them to protect their habitats and natural land.
In addition to helping private landowners protect their property as wildlife habitats, the Texas Wildlife Association has also developed programs for Texas wildlife identification. These programs allow wildlife watchers, conservationists, hunters and nature tourists take part in Texas wildlife identification as part of building the nature tourism as a viable market in the Texas economy. The Texas Wildlife Association has also published books and magazines to aid landowners in managing their wildlife and building their wildlife population.
The Texas Wildlife Association also promotes hunting and hunting rights. Private landowners can allow hunting on their land to aid in wildlife management. Hunting promotes the control of wildlife so that habitats are not allowed to become overpopulated. The Texas Wildlife Association has many programs to promote ethical hunting for wildlife management. These programs include the Texas Youth Hunting program to promote hunting through the Texas youth. Private landowners who allow hunting on their land may also be eligible for Landowner and Hunting Liability Insurance and Recreational Lease Operation Liability Insurance if they are members of the Texas Wildlife Association.
The last weekend in June is also a big time of year for the Texas Wildlife Association as it is when they hold their annual convention. The convention has a golf tournament and various other contests for members as well as events for children. The "Little Lonestars Program" provides a full array of wildlife activities for children during the convention to teach them about Texas wildlife identification and the importance of wildlife management. The Texas Wildlife Association invites guest speakers from the Texas Cooperative Extension Agency to speak on matters dealing with farming protected land and what the future holds for the agricultural community in wildlife management. The convention is a place where landowners, hunters and other Texas Wildlife Association members can get together, talk and learn about wildlife management and Texas wildlife identification.
The Texas Wildlife Association is making large strides in protecting Texas' natural wildlife and agricultural lands through legislation and its membership.
