Our Wildlife Advisory Commission Needs to Have Some Members Who Represent Wildlife!

SUPPORT: Natural Resources – Wildlife Advisory Commission – Membership  – SB 320/HB 188

This bill would define the membership of Maryland’s Wildlife Advisory Commission to include biologists, conservationists, and recreational users as well as hunters to make balanced decisions regarding hunting, trapping, and fishing. The current Wildlife Advisory Commission has nine members but no representation from individuals with a background in academic research with expertise in wildlife biology, wildlife conservation, wildlife management, or ecology.

The Wildlife Advisory Commission must have representation from the scientific, wildlife preservation, wildlife recreation, farming, hunting, and fishing communities to make informed decisions from a variety of perspectives and experiences in order to best serve the needs of all stakeholders.

Maryland’s wildlife is counting on us to make the Wildlife Advisory Commission a place where their interests are represented!
