May 15, 2014 – Jonathan Haufler (’76 M.S. in wildlife science) brings his diverse background to two new positions. He was elected to the board of directors of the nonprofit Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Inc. More than 240 million acres across the U.S. and Canada are certified to the SFI forest management standard, the largest single forest standard in the world.

“I’ve followed SFI as it grew into a highly credible system for assuring sound and publicly supported forest management,” said Haufler. “I’m pleased to have this opportunity to assist in maintaining the quality and integrity of the SFI program as it continues to adapt and adjust to new information and new challenges.”

Haufler is also current president of The Wildlife Society (TWS), an 11,000-member organization dedicated to excellence in wildlife stewardship through science and education. “I am honored to have this opportunity to serve as president and will be working closely with council, staff, and volunteers as we all work to keep TWS a premier professional society,” he said.

With expertise in wildlife management, forest ecology, and range ecology, Haufler serves as executive director and co-founder of the nonprofit Ecosystem Management Research Institute, which provides planning assistance and technical support in ecosystem-based management, cumulative impact assessment, and biodiversity conservation at the landscape level. Among his previous positions, he managed wildlife and ecology programs for Boise Cascade Corp. and served on the faculty at Michigan State University for 13 years.
