WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. — Wildlife Forever is proud to announce B.A.S.S., the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, as the newest partner of the national Clean Drain Dry Initiative. A recently signed memorandum of understanding (MOU) will raise awareness, educate anglers and implement the best practices to prevent invasive species. Through the Clean Drain Dry Initiative, B.A.S.S. members and pro anglers will have access to communication tools and educational content and have the opportunity to join the national public awareness campaign.

“B.A.S.S. anglers and members are on the frontlines, day in and day out. They see the impacts of invasive species and what’s at stake if species spread and new invaders arrive. We’re proud of their commitment to join the fight and protect the future of our fisheries,” said Pat Conzemius, president and CEO of Wildlife Forever.

The integration of Clean Drain Dry conservation messaging within the B.A.S.S organization is a call to action for all anglers to join the movement. Membership is free, and by signing up, anglers will receive the new Pro Ambassador Clean Drain Dry decal.

Invasive species are one of the greatest threats to our nation’s waters. We’re proud to join the national conservation movement and encourage members to become a Clean Drain Dry Pro Ambassador in protecting the future of our sport,” said Gene Gilliland, conservation director for B.A.S.S.

Since 2006, Wildlife Forever’s nationwide coalition of partners has been united in educating America’s sportsmen and women on simple, effective strategies to prevent invasive species. B.A.S.S. will begin utilizing the vast array of Clean Drain Dry Initiative materials to empower and educate members and followers on how and why prevention is critical. Through this shared vision, B.A.S.S. and Wildlife Forever efforts seek to conserve America’s fisheries and waterways ensuring the timeless tradition of bass fishing is enjoyed by future generations.

“I grew up watching B.A.S.S. tournaments with my dad and grandpa, so it’s exciting to see this partnership promote the sustainability of the sport and the waters we enjoy. I hope it inspires the next generation of anglers to join the fight against invasive species,” said Elliott Engen, public service coordinator at Wildlife Forever.
