For the sake of accuracy: Chuck Bonham is Director of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), not the Fish and Game Commission. The Department is the state agency that employs wildlife officers, biologists, botanists, toxicologists, wildlife veterinarians and other specialists dedicated to carrying out its mission. For more information, visit www.wildlife.ca.gov.
The Commission is a separate entity composed of up to five members, appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Senate. None of them are full-time public employees. They hold public meetings and make decisions regarding wildlife laws (e.g., Fish and Game Code) that guide and direct the Department's actions. (www.fgc.ca.gov)
