About Us
The State Wildlife Attorney Gang is a loose confederation of attorneys representing state fish, game and/or wildlife agencies.  Our group originally consisted of several attorneys who were members of the legal committee of the Sutheast Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (SEAFWA).  At our 1998 meeting in Orlando, Florida, we decided to form an email reflector to allow us to share information among ourselves between our spring and fall meetings.

At our meeting the next year in Greensboro, North Carolina, we decided to open the list up to attorneys representing wildlife agencies in other regions of the country.  Since that time, we have grown to the point that we now have reflector participants in thirty nine states and Puerto Rico.

The Wildlife Attorney reflector has allowed us to share information on a very near real-time basis, and given us the resources to more effectively help our client agencies carry our their most important missions of wildlife resource conservation and environmental protection.

We receive no financial support from any public source, but are completely member supported. However, we could not do what we do if it were not for the resources made available to us at no charge from companies such as Yahoo! (for our reflector) and Google for our original Google Pages site).

        About Our Site

This website was begun in early 2007 and was originally hosted through Google Pages.  Shortly thereafter, it was moved and revised to better reflect the needs of the group.  The current site was built usingthe excellent open source or free tools,  Nvu, The Gimp, and CSS Editor.  The site design was inspired by a page design from http://www.alsonix.webpark.net.  (Link now appears to be broken!)  The gang would like to express its appreciation to the many talented folks who freely provided these resources so that some off us could actually pretend we know how to make a website!
