The Secretary of the Interior appoints members, selecting from nominations received from the public. Calls for nominations will be published in the Federal Register. The Council will consist of no more than 18 discretionary and 4 ex officio members.

Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The International Wildlife Conservation Council is necessary to help inform the Department of the Interior and the Department of State about their programs that influence international hunting opportunities and international wildlife conservation. The hunting community has a unique and important role in the history and ongoing efforts of conservation both domestically and internationally. The Council's membership represents a diverse collection of viewpoints required by the Council's mission and will help improve the Interior and State's delivery of international wildlife conservation programs and international hunting opportunities.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings are open to the public.
Recommendation Remarks“Built on the backs of hunters and anglers, the American conservation model proves to be the example for all nations to follow for wildlife and habitat conservation,” Secretary Zinke said. “The conservation and long-term health of big game crosses international boundaries. This council will provide important insight into the ways that American sportsmen and women benefit international conservation from boosting economies and creating hundreds of jobs to enhancing wildlife conservation.”
