NAGA Mission Statement:

The North American Gamebird Association’s mission is to protect, promote and sustain a positive environment in which game bird producers and hunting preserve operators can grow their businesses through monitoring and influencing of legislation, informing and educating our members on current industry trends and issues, and promoting and sustaining our hunting heritage through increased public awareness.

Here are some examples of how we have accomplished our mission:

  • Six times per year, NAGA publishes the NAGA News, which is the official trade magazine for hunting preserve operators and game bird producers.
  • NAGA published an economic impact report, Preserving Wildlife and Rural America, which illustrates that game bird production and preserve industries have a $5 billion impact in the U.S. economy. This report has been infuential in educating decision makers and regulators.
  • The Gamebird Industry is now represented in the National Poultry Improvement Plan on decisions regarding disease testing or potential requirements in case of disease outbreaks or new regulations.
  • Airlines decision to refuse US Postal chick shipments over-turned.
  • Reversed ruling which prohibited use of CRP acres by hunting preserves.
  • Headed off a Federal plan to require individual bird identification.
  • Successfully defended industry from Federal Regulations that sought to ban the release of Mallard ducks.
  • Cooperating on “Minor Use Minor Species” (MUMS) Coalition, for drug approval for treating gamebirds.
  • Developing Strategic Plans for Environmental Management and protection from nuisance lawsuits.
  • Approved a study on coccidiosis in game birds by University of Georgia.

Numbers count in the legislative process. Please join NAGA! Help secure your freedoms and future business opportunities.
