Commissioner named to panel on biodiversity
Clallam County, WA - 1/3/03 - Clallam County Commissioner Steve Tharinger has been named to the new state Biodiversity Committee.
Tharinger (D-Dungness), will help craft the state's first comprehensive blueprint for managing plants, animals and natural habitat.
The committee was the result of the state's new Biodiversity Conservation Initiative mandated by the state Legislature during its 2002 session.
It includes representatives of business, tribes, agriculture, timber and eduation plus key federal, state and local officials and conservation group members. They will examine how state policies affect biological diversity.
Also studied will be what non-regulatory incentives are needed and how to make information about biodiversity protection more accessible.
