TPWD Expands Spanish-Language Web Services

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has expanded the Spanish-language section of its public Web site with the addition of the 2007-2008 Outdoor Annual in Spanish.

The downloadable document, in Adobe PDF format, is a digest of hunting and fishing regulations for the state, and includes important information about license requirements and bag and size limits for game fish and animals.

“Texas Parks and Wildlife is committed to making outdoor opportunities available to all and with the Hispanic population in Texas continuing to grow, we need to make every effort to ensure that information on how to enjoy the outdoors is available to all of our publics,” said TPWD Communications Director Lydia Saldaña.

This year’s Outdoor Annual is just one of the site features available in Spanish. Visitors also may find a guide to fishing spots in major metropolitan areas, a basic guide to fishing called “takemefishing,” boating safety information and the complete state park guide with information about Texas state parks and historic sites.

Note to Editors: For local Spanish-language interviews about hunting, fishing or outdoor recreation, please call (512) 389-8046 or e-mail: aaron.reed@tpwd.texas.gov.
