Citizens named to wildlife management advisory groups

OLYMPIA -- Nearly three dozen state citizens have been appointed to two groups which will advise the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) on wildlife management issues.

One of the councils will focus on wildlife diversity (issues involving non-game wildlife) and the other will address hunting and game management. Similar advisory councils already have been formed to address fish management issues.

The wildlife councils will meet jointly September 27 and are scheduled to gather at least three times a year. In addition to offering advice, council members will communicate with wildlife interest groups.

The Wildlife Diversity Advisory Council will address topics such as endangered species listings, wildlife viewing and educational opportunities, land conservation, environmental projects and the department's wildlife diversity program, including species surveys, research and habitat acquisition.

Members of the Wildlife Diversity Council and their affiliations include: Helen Engle of Tacoma, Charles F. Lennox of Seattle, Tom Campbell of Langley and David Jennings of Olympia (Audubon Society); Penny Falknor of Mountlake Terrace (Puget Sound Eyes on Wildlife); Dr. Toni G.
