“If you look and see who largely is considered a sportsman [and] sportswoman today, it is people who tend to identify it as those on the center- right. That doesn’t mean people on the Left don’t partake in these activities— by no means. But it is largely seen as an activity that people on the political right tend to incline themselves to. And because of takes like this, that is what has prompted me to continue putting out episodes: speaking with people in politics, nonprofits, elsewhere, who are political conservatives, talking about conservation—true conservation and not the preservationist variety—and how important it is to challenge this narrative. So if we need a reminder for why conservatives and even those who like conservatives—you don’t have to be a conservative to like and appreciate what conservatives do, especially in this area—this issue [conservation] shouldn’t be politicized. But we have to kind of detangle it from elements of the Left because they are hijacking what conservation is with preservationist ethos.” — Gabriella Hoffman

In Episode 208 of District of Conservation, Gabriella kicks off Season 4 of the program. She discusses how conservatives actually do love conservation and why this show will continue to debunk preservationist environmentalist lies, American Wildlife Conservation Partners’ stern letter to USFWS slamming CBD/NRDC petitions, and Yellowstone S4 Trailer/premiere details.
