WDFW seeks advisors for council on non-hunted wildlife species

OLYMPIA - The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is seeking
applicants for positions on its Wildlife Diversity Advisory Council, which
provides management recommendations to the department on non-hunted animals
ranging from butterflies to killer whales.

WDFW Director Jim Unsworth will appoint up to 10 members to the 17-member
advisory council, based on their interest in wildlife and their ability to
communicate their perspectives to the department and a broader group of
stakeholders.

To receive consideration, nominations must be received by June 20, 2016.

To ensure the council represents a diversity of views, WDFW especially
encourages applications from those who can represent Eastern Washington,
academia, agricultural and timber industries, hunting and fishing groups,
and conservation organizations. Those with experience in marketing, social
science, and natural resource economics are also encouraged to apply.

Nominees do not have to be affiliated with an organized group to receive
consideration. Nominations must be submitted in writing with the following
information:

* Nominee's name, address, telephone number and email address.
* Explanation of interest and reasons for wanting to serve as a member
of the advisory group.
* Nominee's effectiveness in communication.
* Name and contact information of any individual or organization
submitting a nomination.

Nominations should be submitted to Penny Becker, Wildlife Diversity Division
Manager, by email at Penny.Becker at dfw.wa.gov
<mailto:Penny.Becker at dfw.wa.gov> or by postal mail at Washington Department
of Fish and Wildlife, 600 Capitol Way N, Olympia, WA 98501-1091.

Wildlife advisory council members will serve three-year terms, and should be
available for advisory council meetings beginning as early as September. The
council holds at least two one-day meetings a year. Sub-committees on
specific topic hold conference calls and meetings as needed throughout the
year.

Council members, upon request, will be reimbursed by WDFW for travel
expenses to attend meetings.

Persons with disabilities who need to receive this information in an
alternative format or who need reasonable accommodations to participate in
WDFW-sponsored public meetings or other activities may contact Dolores Noyes
by phone (360-902-2349), TTY (360-902-2207), or email
(dolores.noyes at dfw.wa.gov <mailto:dolores.noyes at dfw.wa.gov> ). For more
