TAKE ACTION

The Fish and Wildlife Commission is responsible for overseeing the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), and helps control programs and policies that deal with managing and conserving fish and wildlife resources across the state. These appointments matter.

The Fish and Wildlife Commission is responsible for overseeing the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), and helps control programs and policies that deal with managing and conserving fish and wildlife resources across the state.

From establishing fishing seasons and bag limits on recreational and commercial harvest, to overseeing the major operations of the department’s more than 1,000 employees and $345 million biennial operating budget, the Fish and Wildlife Commission is responsible for supervising ODFW to ensure they fulfill their legal requirement to prevent the serious depletion of Oregon’s indigenous species.

The seven-member, governor-appointed commission serves staggered four-year terms that represent each congressional district from across the state. Terms for two current members, Laura Anderson (District 5) and Gregory Wolley (District 3) have expired, but they have both done admirable jobs on the Commission and should be reappointed to help maintain their institutional knowledge.

A third position from Congressional District 2 is open, and we’re asking for your voice to let Gov. Brown know you want a commission member that understands the current and future threats to Oregon’s native fish and wildlife, has no obvious conflicts of interest, prioritizes the long-term health of Oregon’s wild, native fish and is serious about providing healthy fish and wildlife populations to future generations.

Take action and send your letter to Gov. Brown today!
