WDFW Seeks Candidates For Wolf Advisory Group
OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking candidates to serve for the next two years on the committee that advises the department on wolf recovery and management.
WDFW Director Phil Anderson will appoint up to 12 Washington state residents to the Wolf Advisory Group, which makes recommendations to guide the department’s implementation of the 2011 state Wolf Conservation and Management Plan.
WDFW formed the advisory group in 2013 with nine members, who represent the interests of ranchers, wolf advocates, and hunters. The current members’ terms expire Dec. 31, and Anderson said they are encouraged to re-apply if they wish to continue. The new appointees’ terms will run through December 2016.
