Bunn Named to Alabama Conservation Advisory Board
 
T.J. Bunn Jr. of Tuscaloosa has been appointed to the Alabama Conservation Advisory Board by Gov. Robert Bentley.
 
Bunn, an avid hunter, angler and conservationist, graduated from the University of Alabama School of Business.
 
Bunn is employed at S.T. Bunn Construction Company, a third-generation family business focused on asphalt and base construction.
 
Bunn, a member of Safari Club International, Alabama Wildlife Federation and the National Wild Turkey Federation, replaces Brock Jones of Tuscaloosa on the Conservation Advisory Board.
 
The Conservation Advisory Board is composed of 10 members appointed by the governor for alternating terms of six years, and three ex-officio members – the Governor, the Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries, and the Director of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. The Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources serves as the ex-officio secretary of the board.
 
The board assists in formulating policies for the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and examines all rules and regulations. By a two-thirds vote of the members present and with the governor’s approval, the board can amend, change or repeal current rules and regulations or create and promulgate additional rules and regulations. The board also assists in publicizing the department’s programs and activities.
 
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Parks, State Lands, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
