BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Secretary Robert Barham has been approved to serve on two panels dealing with federal conservation work.

A news release from the department says that President Barack Obama last week approved Barham’s nomination to the North American Wetlands Conservation Act Council and the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act Advisory Group.

The conservation act council was established to provide grants to carry out wetlands conservation projects for the benefit of migratory birds and other wildlife. The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act Advisory Group includes members of the conservation act council. It meets annually to make recommendations to the director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Barham, a former state senator, has been the secretary of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries since 2008.
