With more than 100 bidders from Tennessee to Oregon, the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation Inc. reports the 20th Online Trip Auction was the most successful since it moved online from radio five years ago.
The 2010 auction offered more than 40 outdoor trips and raised close to $17,000.
The foundation's board of directors appreciates the partnership with and help of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, underwriting support of ActiveOutdoors, donations from businesses throughout Idaho and the winning bidders.
This year's auction benefited Idaho's Watchable Wildlife program, which promotes an appreciation for wildlife and habitat, wildlife-based tourism, and responsible wildlife observation for the residents in Idaho. Efforts encourage wildlife viewing, photography, education and other non-consumptive wildlife recreation to build community awareness, understanding, and support for the conservation of the wildlife and habitats upon which these activities depend.
The Idaho Fish and Wildlife Foundation is dedicated to protecting and sustaining Idaho's fishing, hunting and wildlife heritage for present and future generations. The foundation is committed to bringing together and providing resources to promote conservation education, supporting projects dedicated to preserving fish and wildlife habitat and creating unique opportunities to experience Idaho's great outdoors.
