Conservation of wildlife and wild places.
• Wild places includes the ownership, holding and management of conservation and mitigation bank land easements to restore and preserve the wild, natural state and recreational use of land forever. It includes protecting the natural, scenic or open-space values of land.

Expand sustainable use for its indispensable value to mankind and the natural world.
• Indispensable value means the positive generation of management operating revenue and incentives for local people.
• Sustainable means more than able to be sustained: it means the restoration of habitat and the growth in wildlife abundance.
Insure the continued contribution, positive perception and perceived relevance of the hunting and angling conservation community.
Facilitate greater collaboration, cooperation and coordination within the hunting and angling conservation community and participate constructively with competitors.
