Continued: Dennis Anderson: Wildlife groups can't save the world alone

Meanwhile, in Minnesota, the most important conservation program ever proposed -- constitutionally dedicated funding -- awaits finalization in the Legislature and approval at the polls in November.

Recall that in the past 25 years PF and DU together have spent about $60 million for Minnesota habitat. Their contributions will be even more important in the next 25 years.

As will those of dedicated funding, whose promise is to set aside $100 million per year for fish and wildlife habitat and $100 million per year for clean water.

Upshot: The future of pheasants, ducks and other wildlife is very uncertain. Join a group. Contribute your time and money. Stay informed. And be sure your legislators support constitutionally dedicated funding.

Sunday: Will corn-based ethanol give way to making gas from grass? If so, whither wildlife? Also, Doug Smith profiles PF's most productive chapter in Minnesota.
