Many of us use Washington’s beautiful lands and waters for hiking, biking, paddling and wildlife viewing. The state’s Fish and Wildlife Commission, which makes important decisions about how these resources are used, should reflect the views of all the state’s residents. But the commissioners largely represent those who use natural resources for consumption, such as fishing, hunting and ranching.
The good news: Two seats on the commission are open. Gov. Jay Inslee can make a difference by rapidly filling these seats with pro-science, pro-conservation commissioners.
Tell Gov. Inslee to appoint new Fish and Wildlife commissioners before more decisions are made about how to best use our state’s public lands and waters.
