After the opening ceremony by outgoing president Marcie Uhart, we were welcomed to San Cristóbal by Gerardo Suzán, from Kalaan-Kab and the Latin American Section of the WDA, our gracious host for the meeting.
Call for Comments
The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has great concern about the potential impacts of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) should the disease enter or spread within New York, and we emphasize that comprehensive and robust disease prevention is the most cost-effective and sensible approach to protect our wild deer and moose and captive deer and elk from CWD. You may have seen our press release earlier this week announcing a Draft CWD Risk Minimization Plan for New York. The draft plan is available at http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/
