GAP Conservation Biologist Invited to Western Governors Associate Wildlife Council Meeting

Wednesday, May 25 2011


Jocelyn Aycrigg, conservation biologist for the National Gap Analysis Program at the University of Idaho, was invited to attend the Western Governors Association Wildlife Council meeting, May 16-18 in Boise. Aycrigg was invited to attend because species models being created by the National Gap Analysis Program will be reviewed and used as part of the data being compiled to identify wildlife corridors and priority conservation areas. The Wildlife Council is attempting to balance the need for wildlife conservation with the demand for energy in 19 western states.
