and approval by the WPC Board of Directors. If the WPC is unable to secure an option on this property, a cooperative agreement between the game Commission and the WPC will allow the $90,000 to be used to acquire other lands acceptable to the game Commission. In Erie County, the 81.5 acres in springfield township are adjacent to sgL 314, and will be paid for through a partnership with the WPC. the game Commission’s cost-share amount for the purchase is $400 per acre, and related survey costs. the acquisition is subject to the WPC purchasing the property, which is mainly forested, and Raccoon Creek flows through the southern portion of the property. Public access is from Old Lake Road. In other action the Board: •Gave preliminary approval to a regulatory change to reduce the applicability of the Convention on International trade in Endangered species (CItEs) tag to bobcats and international exports only. CItEs is a comprehensive conservation treaty signed by 175 countries, including the united states, which regulates the commercial trade of wildlife species and works to ensure that international

trade of species is sustainable and does not threaten their survival. In relevant part, CItEs requires permanent tags to be affixed to carcasses or parts of species being exported internationally. the bobcat, while not threatened with extinction, is listed in CItEs and trade is controlled to protect endangered cats that have fur and parts similar in appearance; therefore, CItEs applies to international exportation of this species; •Gave approval to solicit public comments, until sept. 1, on draft wildlife management plans for ruffed grouse and bobwhite quail, developed by the Bureau of Wildlife Management. the plans are on the agency’s website; •Recognized the final meetings of game Commissioners tom Boop and greg Isabella. While this was the final meeting in their 8-year term, both Commissioners have the option of serving up to an additional six months, or until their successor is confirmed by the state senate; and •Re-affirmed the Board’s final 2011 quarterly meetings will be held on Oct. 3-4, at the agency’s Harrisburg headquarters. the Board will establish the date of the first meeting of 2012 at its October meeting.

25-Year Deputies
the game Commission, and everybody interested in Pennsylvania wildlife, are deeply indebted to our force of deputy wildlife conservation officers. at tremendous personal time and financial expense, these officers work tirelessly on law enforcement, information and education programs, and much more.
