Todd Holbrook, the new President and CEO of the Georgia Wildlife Federation.

Holbrook, of Conyers, comes to GWF after a 27-year career with Georgia’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR), including stints as Assistant Director of the Wildlife Resources Division and Chief of Game Management. A certified wildlife biologist, Holbrook was responsible for several groundbreaking studies in Georgia into the decline, recruitment and retention of hunting and angling participation.

“The Georgia Wildlife Federation has always been - since I’ve been interacting with them - about sound, scientific wildlife management. Professional wildlife management. How we go about making these wildlife policy decisions. And that’s huge. Because people sometimes get shunted off on what’s convenient and resource decisions need to be made out of the foundation of science.”

During his career withe the DNR, Holbrook applied the curiosity of a trained wildlife biologist to study the broader social and economic aspects of wildlife management in Georgia.
