Mark Scott, 53, of South Barre, Vt is the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department's new Director of Wildlife.

Scott has worked in the department's Outreach Division since 1982 where he managed its educational programs, including two Green Mountain Conservation Camps, the one-week course "Fish and Wildlife Management for Educators," the state's mandatory Hunter Education program, Let's Go Fishing, and Project WILD. He also represents the Agency of Natural Resources on Vermont's Environmental Literacy Steering Committee and the Vermont Envirothon Steering Committee. Recently, he chaired the department's Shooting Range Safety Review Team.

Scott has a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife Management from the University of Maine and a Master of Science degree in Wildlife Biology from the University of Vermont. He also graduated from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resource's Leadership and Management Training Program.

In his new capacity, Scott will be responsible for all of the department's Wildlife Division programs and more than 30 personnel in the division. He will work out of the department's main office in Waterbury.

"I am excited to be given this opportunity, especially given our department has incredibly talented scientists, wardens, educators and support staff, combined with more than 80,000 passionate hunters and another 300,000 Vermonters who care about wildlife," said Scott. "At the same time, I know I will miss my responsibilities in our State's wildlife education programs. However, our work often revolves around people and their behavior more than the critters themselves."
