The California Wolf Center cordially invites you to our 2014 Wolf Awareness Week fundraising event exploring creating meaningful social change to protect wildlife in California. Jennifer Fearing, California Senior State Director for The Humane Society of the United States, will share her insights into advocating for wildlife conservation in the state of California. As California prepares for the return of gray wolves after decades of absence, what role can each of us play in preserving wolves and other species for generations to come?
Jennifer Fearing leads policy efforts in California for The Humane Society of the United States. She ran the successful Proposition 2 ballot campaign in 2008 and has been in Sacramento since that time lobbying the California legislature, Fish and Game Commission, Department of Fish and Wildlife and other regulatory agencies. She was part of the coalition that enacted the ban on the sale and possession of shark fins and the lead-free ammunition requirement for take of wildlife, led the successful legislative effort to end the cruel hounding of bears and bobcats, and is pursuing reforms to California's approach to predator species. She earned her undergraduate degree in Political Science and Economics from UC Davis and her masters degree from Harvard in Public Policy.
