I hope to continue to post up information about this event leading up to it and I also hope to be able to go and be a part of it. Then I could also blog about it while there, but more importantly than my excitement and my enthusiasm for an event of this nature, I want you to see the vast potential such an event like this has for reinvigorating the conservation community.
Regardless of your personal belief system, the more people we have in the arena promoting conservation, the better off any and all of our collective conservation/environmental causes. When you then send out a call to everyone in the world who care about trout to be a part of an International Trout Congress, I hope you see, as I see, the vast potential for a great many positive things for not only trout but for the conservation ethic as a whole to come out of this.
I don't want to spend too much time here sharing my own take on this thing, so I will close out this message early with some links to the International Trout Congress webpage. Just think about the fact that everyone and everything has more and more forces working to fragment our attention and ultimately our ability to bring about positive changes to how we interact with our environs, bringing all of these people and ideas to one place, during one week, should serve as a great energizing spark that fuels conservation and environmental minded people and ideals with a restated purpose that says we can always do better by our world. I hope you can see that and that you will participate.
And no, I'm not affiliated with this in any other way than I read about it in TU's Trout magazine and decided to email the organizers to let them know I would love to publish any information they have about the event when they have it ready. They have a really informative website and that is where I am pointing you today. I look forward to passing along any press releases they have in the future.
