Sportsman Channel and Coastal Conservation Association Team Up To Support Gulf Habitat

Posted on July 14, 2011

In an effort to raise awareness and funds for Gulf regions working to recover from the recent oil spill disaster, Sportsman Channel has created a special "Sportsman’s Fund" with the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) to benefit Gulf coast habitat restoration and research.

Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American Sportsman, recently announced the network is now available in both SD and HD as an a la carte option on DISH Network Ch. 395. To help promote awareness to Gulf restoration efforts, Sportsman Channel will funnel this year's proceeds from an a la carte option to the Sportsman’s Fund. DISH Network is offering a free preview of Sportsman Channel Sept. 3 - 28. Outdoor enthusiasts can subscribe to Sportsman Channel a la carte by visiting www.dish.com or calling (800) 894-9131. Sportsman Channel and Sportsman HD launched in DISH Network's America's Top 250 package in February 2010.
 
Viewers, hunters, anglers and conservationists also have the option to make a direct contribution to the Sportsman Fund below:
"We are thankful to have this unique partnership with Sportsman Channel and DISH Network that helps to raise awareness and vital funds to restore the Gulf of Mexico," said Pat Murray, CCA president. "There are some very positive programs and signs of progress occurring throughout the Gulf, but there is still much to do. This generous program will be an important part of restoring and enhancing the Gulf’s fragile habitats."
