Natural Resources Officer Recognized for Years of Service

CHARLESTON, W.VA. – The Wildlife Resources Section Chief of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources was honored for his years of service by the Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.

Paul Johansen received the association’s Past President’s Award at the association’s conference last week in Charleston.

“He pours it all into his work and that includes all the great work he does on behalf of SEAFWA, whether he leads the organization or leads one of its important committees or initiatives,” said JD Strong, Director of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.

Johansen was president of SEAFWA for two years. He is a certified wildlife biologist and has held various positions with the West Virginia agency. He became the head of the wildlife resources section in 2015.

“Paul is an asset to Wildlife Resources and the entire agency,” said Natural Resources Division Manager Brett McMillion. “His vast experience and wisdom are invaluable to conservation efforts in West Virginia and this region of the country.”
