Bryan Fisher Named Wildlife Officer of the Year by International Conservation Organization
October 22, 2009
Officer Bryan Fisher has been named Wildlife Officer of the Year by the Shikar-Safari Club International (SSCI). Fisher, an employee of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR), is a Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Conservation Enforcement Officer, a position he has held since 2006.
WFF Chief Enforcement Officer Allan Andress is proud of Fisher’s accomplishments. “He has proven himself to be a dedicated professional who focuses on the enforcement of serious, resource related offenses,” Andress said. “He has also demonstrated his enthusiastic support for the department’s community outreach programs, such as hunter education, youth dove hunts, youth turkey hunts, challenged outdoorsmen events, and community fishing programs.”
In addition to his work as an ADCNR conservation enforcement officer, Fisher is an active member of the National Wild Turkey Federation, Ducks Unlimited and the Fraternal Order of Police. Officer Fisher is currently assigned to Walker County.
The SSCI is an international conservation organization that funds and supports a variety of conservation projects and scholarships around the world. In addition to recognizing outstanding officers in wildlife conservation, the SSCI also provides a $20,000 death benefit to the officer’s family in the event the officer is killed in the line of duty.
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
