About Pam Toschik
Pam Toschik joined the Northeast Regional Office's leadership team in 2014. As Assistant Regional Director of the Migratory Bird program, she administers regional and flyway actions and activities and collaborates with partners to benefit migratory bird habitats and species.
Prior to joining the Service, Toschik worked for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as lead for international Antarctic policy. In that role she helped develop a proposal for one of the world's largest marine protected areas in the Ross Searegion of Antarctica.
Toschik's current job with the Service is not her first experience with the Department of the Interior. While completing her master's degree from the University of Maryland, she worked with scientists at Patuxent Wildlife Research Center and the Chesapeake Bay Field Office to study the impacts of contaminants and habitat suitability on ospreys nesting in the mid-Atlantic. During her undergraduate studies at Cornell University she researched the impacts of contaminants on waterfowl habitat to inform management at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge.
Toschik's expertise in negotiation and collaboration, coupled with her track record for finding consensus-based solutions, are assets to the Migratory Birds program, as well as the Service's ongoing efforts to conserve sustainable and resilient landscapes and connect with the American public.
