MAFWA Announces Hire of New National Wild Pheasant Conservation Plan Coordinator

Written by Connie on .

→  The following is a press release from national Pheasants Forever. ↑


Dr. J. Scott Taylor has been hired as the Coordinator of the National Wild Pheasant Conservation Plan the Midwest AsDr Taylor PFsociation of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (MAFWA) announced last weekend (March 2016) at the North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference.  Dr. Taylor will begin his new duties in April at the Pheasants Forever regional office on the campus of South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota.

Inspired by the successes of the National Bobwhite Conservation Initiative, the National Wild Pheasant Conservation Plan was developed by the Midwest Pheasant Study Group, an official advisory body of MAFWA composed of state pheasant biologists, with significant participation of other pheasant states  throughout the country.  The goal of the plan is to restore and maintain self-sustaining wild pheasant populations in each state to provide maximum recreation opportunities. 

Although originally the product of MAFWA, the plan truly is national in scope, and the Midwest Pheasant Study Group was disbanded and reconstituted as the National Pheasant Technical Committee.  Participating pheasant states from the Pacific Northwest to Pennsylvania plus Pheasant Forever have pledged not only for the implementation of the plan, but also financial commitments to support the Coordinator's work for at least 3 years.  (Photo downloaded from orignial press release.)
