Pennsylvania Game Commission Northeast Region Director Daniel Figured was recently presented with the Pennsylvania Trappers Association’s (PTA) 2017 Conservationist of the Year Award for his contributions to wildlife management and support of Pennsylvania’s trappers.
The award was presented to Figured at the Game Commission Northeast Region office in Dallas by PTA past president Brian Mohn and PTA Public Relations Director Barry Warner.
Figured is responsible for directing and coordinating all Game Commission wildlife law enforcement, wildlife-management, and habitat enhancement programs within the 13 counties that comprise the Northeast Region.
“Dan has been a tremendous asset to Pennsylvania’s trappers by providing training for wildlife conservation officers in the areas of best management trapping practices, nuisance wildlife control, and positive public relations,” said Warner. “In addition, Officer Figured recognizes the critical role that regulated trapping plays in scientific wildlife management and supports the PTA in its training, educational, and public outreach programs.”
