Game and Fish's Susan Patla receives Craighead Award

12/22/2014

JACKSON - Susan Patla, nongame wildlife biologist for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department in Jackson has been named as recipient of the 2014 Craighead Conservation award. Patla was honored at the recently completed Jackson Hole Wildlife Symposium hosted by the Teton Research Institute and the Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative.

Patla began her career with the Game and Fish in 1998 after earning a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in zoology and biological anthropology and a master’s degree in biology and ecology from Idaho State University. In her years with the Game and Fish she has been actively working with trumpeter swans, bald eagles, peregrine falcons, harlequin ducks and other species of conservation concern.

During the past 10 years she has been instrumental with trumpeter swan research and wetland conservation efforts. She has also completed a wetland conservation plan for wetland pond projects and conservation easements in the Green River Drainage. Patla currently serves as a board member for the Meg and Bert Raynes Wildlife Fund, and is on advisory boards for Nature Mapping-Jackson Hole and the Jackson Bird and Nature Club. She started the Teton Valley/Alta Audubon Christmas Bird Count in 2004 and continues to direct that effort.

Game and Fish supervisor of biological services, Bob Lanka said that while Susan may be best known for her work on trumpeter swans, that is only part of what she does. “She has been a tireless ambassador for nongame wildlife and the Game and Fish for more than 15 years,” Lanka said. “Without the unique partnerships Susan has been able to forge, the work the Department has done for nongame wildlife in northwest Wyoming would not have been possible.”

The Craighead Conservation Award was established in 2003 to honor the legacy of Frank and John Craighead for their extraordinary dedication to wildlife conservation in Jackson Hole.
