Women in conservation
It’s Women’s History Month! We’re celebrating it this year by highlighting women in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and female conservationists who have left an indelible mark on the Service and our mission.
Stay tuned for posts this month featuring:
- Wendi Weber and Deborah Rocque share their choices for careers in conservation. They are the first female regional leadership team in the Service as director and deputy regional director for the Northeast Region, which leads conservation from Virginia up to Maine;
- A former intern offers her perspective about starting off in the Service;
- A very special local volunteer who crusaded for the protection of wildlife in New Jersey;
- A refuge manager who found her refuge in the eye of Hurricane Sandy;
- A wildlife investigator,
- A Virginia field biologist; and
- A few more minutes from our chat with Wendi and Deborah to wrap up Women’s History Month!
Women fill important roles throughout the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Is there a woman in your life who works to protect and foster Mother Nature? Comment below, and join us all month as we meet just a few of them and share in their experiences!
