Furbearers Unlimited, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
1. FBU is not a trappers association. However it is a resource for the many trappers organizations in North America and throughout the world. It will not dictate policy, propose specific laws, or in any way strive for leadership in the fur industry. It will assist in leadership education efforts if called upon.
2. FBU is not a spokesperson for wildlife agencies or the fur industry, but it will help those people become more effective through educational seminars and workshops. The staff will participate in appropriate public forums on issues affecting conservation, management and wise use of furbearers, but only as a source of information, not as advocates for an industry position.
3. FBU is not a law firm, though it may retain legal council. It is not a lobbying organization seeking to impose a point of view on pending legislation. The staff will be available, however, to serve as expert witnesses in litigation's and governmental hearings upon request, when such appearances are appropriate and conform to internal policies. It will generally provide informational support for litigation and lobbying efforts to groups and individuals supporting the conservation and sound wildlife management practices of furbearer species.
Furbearers Unlimited is a non-profit, tax exempt (501c3), furbearer oriented, conservation organization. All contributions and donations to FBU are tax deductible.
FBU was established in 1988 and incorporated in the state of Montana.
FBU is dedicated to developing, promoting and supporting educational programs based upon scientific, technical, and legal study and analysis for the restoration, wise use, management and conservation of furbearers and other natural resources.
