Wyoming to Form Wildlife Taskforce

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission announced the formation of a new taskforce that will study top-priority wildlife issues such as licensing and public access facing the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and sportsmen and women. The group, called the Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce, will be chaired by Commission President Pete Dube and has seats reserved for the public to serve on the group. The new group will include Game and Fish Director Brian Nesvik and members from the Wyoming Legislature. Anyone from the public with interest in joining the taskforce may submit a letter of interest by December 10th by email to meghan.lockwood@wyo.gov. The application should contain details on their background and the contributions he or she would bring to the committee. Up to three supporting documents, such as letters of recommendation or resumes/CVs, will be accepted. The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce will have 12-months to analyze topics and will meet monthly. Members are expected to attend all meetings and be actively engaged in the group’s work between meetings. Taskforce membership will be announced in late December.
