UP Trappers Association, Inc. is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization striving to educate trappers on the safe, sustainable and humane harvest of furbearers and the part they play in ensuring healthy furbearer populations for the enjoyment of future generations.  Through fair booths, sportsmen’s conventions, radio interviews and other outreach programs we also hope to educate the general public on the many benefits of trapping.  We try to convey to those who don’t often interact with wildlife how the nation’s professional wildlife managers use science; population data; and the help of trappers, hunters and fishermen – to protect habitat, keep predators and prey in balance, limit disease outbreaks, minimize human and wildlife conflicts, protect endangered and threatened species, and promote the health and well-being of the animals themselves.
