Coalition forms to propose solutions to DNR’s fish and wildlife funding shortfall

Revenue from fishing and hunting license sales has not been able to fully fund the DNR's fish and wildlife account.  The agency predicts a $15 million shortfall in the account in 2026.

A coalition of groups and individuals has formed to propose remedies for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ lack of fish and wildlife funding.

Led by the Wisconsin Wildlife Federation, the effort aims to stimulate conversations among stakeholders about possible solutions to the DNR’s funding problems and develop a plan to address them, said Cody Kamrowski, WWF executive director.

“The problem is quite well known,” Kamrowski said. “But if something doesn’t change, it’s only going to get worse.”

For about a decade, the DNR has reported shortages and warned of even greater problems in the future in its Fish and Wildlife account.
