Todd Holbrook (’84) receives SEAFWA award


Todd Holbrook

Feb. 15, 2016 – Todd Holbrook (’84 M.S. wildlife science) followed his father Herman “Duff” Holbrook’s footsteps into a career in wildlife management, and now he’s received the same award his father received in 1988.

The Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies presented Holbrook with the 2015 C.W. Watson Award, its highest honor. Given to the career individual who has made the greatest contribution to wildlife or fish conservation during the previous year or years, the award is presented jointly by the Southern Division of the American Fisheries Society, the Southeastern Section of the Wildlife Society, and the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.

“It was kind of neat to have the same honor bestowed on me that he received in 1988,” Todd Holbrook said of his father, who passed away in 2015.

Holbrook spent 27 years in a range of positions with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources before retiring as deputy commissioner in 2012. He then went on to take the helm at the Georgia Wildlife Federation for 2½ years.

“Todd Holbrook has proven himself a highly productive wildlife resource manager at all levels from field biologist to deputy commissioner of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources,” said SEAFWA President Bob Ziehmer.
