A Vision of the Wild

Conservation in Missouri

This film examines the effectiveness of removing direct political influence from the responsible branch of government for wildlife. The people of Missouri have developed a unique culture In which conservation is highly valued. Multiple sales taxes are passed by overwhelming margins.

But what did it take to get here? What was lost, and what has been gained? What can other states develop from this template? Is the common notion that Missouri’s Department of Conservation is the best in the nation really a tangible fact?
