E-M:/ 'Critter' conservation groups fear economy will hurt fundraising

I've noticed this concern with many of our Michigan organizations.
"Critter groups" — species-specific, hunter- and angler-supported foundations that watch out for elk, mule deer, wild sheep, wild trout and others — seem to have weathered the recession well.
However, they are bracing for the next shock wave from the nation's deteriorating economy and anxiously watching the first quarter of this year, when many hold their annual fundraisers. Officials wonder whether people will volunteer less, contribute fewer dollars or fail to renew their memberships.
