A thirteen-year veteran of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Mark Sattelberg is the new field supervisor of the Ecological Services office in Conway Arkansas.

“We are happy to welcome Mark to the Southeast Region,” said Sam D. Hamilton, Southeast Regional Director. “His management skills, particularly in forging and maintaining partnerships, are invaluable.”

In his new position, Sattelberg supervises a 12-person staff. Natural resource programs administered under Ecological Services include endangered and threatened species listing and recovery; wildlife habitat conservation; wetlands conservation and mapping; and habitat conservation planning and permitting

“I plan to facilitate the quality work being accomplished by our staff in the Arkansas Ecological Services Office,” Sattelberg said. “I’m excited to be in the natural state of Arkansas, and I want to explore the possibility of new relations with new and old partners in our efforts to conserve the state’s numerous and diverse resources.”

In his previous position, Sattelberg served as Supervisory Fish and Wildlife Biologist at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Commerce City, Colorado since 1997. In this position, Sattelberg headed both the habitat restoration and the wildlife monitoring and management groups at the refuge. He also coordinated with the Department of Energy on the transition of Rocky Flats into the National Wildlife Refuge System. The official transfer is expected in early 2007.

His first position with the service was as a contaminants biologist with the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge in southern Illinois. He started his federal career as a Resource Conservation and Recovery Act permit writer with the Environmental Protection Agency in Chicago.

Sattelberg holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry from North Central College in Naperville, Illinois, and a master’s degree in biology from the University of West Florida in Pensacola.

He enjoys spending time with his wife, Jane, and 12-year-old son Benjamin. His interests include remodeling homes, fishing and camping.
