Fish and Wildlife Service Names Science Adviser
13 July 2010 4:41 pm
Gabriela Chavarria of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has been picked as the science adviser for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Trained as an entomologist, Chavarria studied neotropical bumble bees and has since worked in conservation policy at Washington, D.C.–based NGOs. Since 2006, she has directed NRDC's science program. Before that she was vice president for science and conservation at Defenders of Wildlife and headed conservation policy at the National Wildlife Federation. Chavarria was also a member of the Invasive Species Advisory Committee and served on the recovery team for the endangered black-footed ferret.
Among other issues, Chavarria will provide advice on how the agency should deal with climate change. She replaces Dan Ashe, a career employee who became deputy director for policy late last year. Chavarria, who declined to be interviewed, starts 9 August.
