That’s why we’re very excited to share with you Governor Brown’s most recent nomination to the Commission: Dr. Kathayoon Khalil!
Dr. Khalil brings more than a decade working on conservation education and research at the Oregon Zoo and other institutions. She has a masters in environmental science from Yale and PhD in environmental education from Stanford. Her primary focus has been on the human dimensions of conservation including environmental education and pro-environmental behavior.
Dr. Khalil has a lot of experience turning scientific recommendations into practical policy and on-the-ground solutions. We believe her unique experience with wildlife conservation research and implementation, strategic planning, and community collaboration will make her an asset on the Commission.
Please take a few minutes out of your day to contact your State Senator to let them know you support Dr. Khalil’s candidacy for the ODFW Commission. Call and leave a brief message of support or send a short email. Messages do not have to be long or detailed, but it is critical that senators hear from their constituents that they want this nomination moved forward.Learn More
