Published: October 25,2013
Tom Moorman, Ph.D., has been selected to replace the retiring Curtis Hopkins, Ph.D., as director of operations for Ducks Unlimited’s Southern Region. Moorman will oversee DU’s conservation delivery in 13 states.
Moorman came into the public spotlight as the leader of DU’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Response Team in 2010, but his contributions to wildlife management and conservation planning have been known in the field for some time. Utilizing his extensive experience with waterfowl and wetland research and management, Moorman has guided DU’s planning and evaluation within the 13-state Southern Region to strengthen the science underlying DU’s conservation programs.
Moorman received a bachelor of science from Ohio University, a master’s in wildlife science from Auburn and a doctorate in wildlife ecology from the State University of New York. He has received a number of awards from within and outside DU, including the national 2012 Jim McDonough Award from The Wildlife Society.
Moorman will assume his new position on Nov. 1 and will continue working out of DU’s Southern Regional Office in Ridgeland.
