Bobwhite quail just can’t seem to catch a break.
After years of struggling to remain financially capable of keeping the organization afloat, Quail Unlimited has finally conceded the fight and closed its doors. The loss of an organization rooted in the advancement of quail is a tough blow to the struggling species, but hope remains.
Bill E. Bowles, the outgoing president of Quail Unlimited, wrote in a statement to members, “We share in an obligation to our mission of supporting quail and youth. It is time for us to assure ourselves that we stay focused on our mission. It is my firm belief, at this time, that our beloved quail need us to unite our efforts. In the near future members will receive a letter from Quail Forever explaining exciting news and opportunities. We hope you will support them in these efforts. We all know that we are stronger when we work together for a common goal. Our quail and our youth will benefit from your membership in Quail Forever.”
