“I think we are seeing this movement of canceled culture that is taking over our nation. It’s in our schools. It’s on social media. It’s everywhere. The movement you know, is in Oregon, New Mexico. I think there’s seven to nine states who already are looking at language to ban hunting and fishing and actually actually criminalized hunting and fishing. We’re seeing sitting US Congressmen that have been banned on Twitter for a harvest picture with their spouse and honestly, it’s terrifying.” — Florida State Representative Lauren Melo, sponsor of House Joint Resolution 1157

In Episode 359 of District of Conservation, Gabriella hosts a roundtable with Florida conservationists on how the Sunshine State passed a right to hunt and fish amendment. Featured guests include Rep. Lauren Melo, the House sponsor, and activists Travis Thompson and Mike Elfenbein. Tune in to learn more!
