Our guest tonight is Erik Molvar, M.S., Sagebrush Sea Campaign Director for WildEarth Guardians.
Erik Molvar joined WildEarth Guardians in 2013 as their Sagebrush Sea Campaign Director. He received a M. Sc. in Wildlife Management at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he authored a number of scientific studies on the evolutionary biology, population dynamics, and ecology of Alaskan moose.
Erik spent 13 years as Wildlife Biologist and later Executive Director for Biodiversity Conservation Alliance in Wyoming, where he specialized in sage grouse conservation and oil and gas issues. He served four years on the Laramie City Council, where he moved a national resolution on hydraulic fracking through the National League of Cities.
Key objectives of the Sagebrush Sea Campaign are to retire livestock grazing from millions of acres and offer ranchers an equitable exit strategy and to secure federal legislation that authorizes voluntary and permanent grazing permit retirement.
