Meeting: July 12, 2018 – The Arkansas Wildlife Action Plan

Allison Fowler, Wildlife Diversity Program Coordinator, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission

The Arkansas Wildlife Action Plan highlights needs and actions for 377 Species of Greatest Conservation Need. By implementing those actions, the hope is to preclude further decline of those species. Through the State Wildlife Grants program a variety projects are funded to conduct research that fills data gaps, or to restore and create habitat for those species in need.

Allison Fowler is the wildlife diversity program coordinator for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. She has served in that position for over six years. In this role, she coordinates efforts for Species of Greatest Conservation Need and oversees implementation of the Arkansas Wildlife Action Plan. Before joining AGFC, she worked as a field ecologist at the Nature Conservancy. She has a B.S. in Wildlife Ecology and Management from Arkansas State University and an M.S. in Forest Resources from the University of Arkansas at Monticello.
