Thank you, Kris and Mark; welcome Laura Bies, our next moderator!

Thank you, Kris Hoellen and Mark Madison for sharing your thoughts with us this past week on how to balance economy and ecology, and the value of fiction and non-fiction as vehicles for reaching people on environmental topics. Remember you can continue to comment on Kris and Mark's recent posts - we hope you will keep sharing your thoughts on their posts.

Our next week's moderator is Laura Bies, The Wildlife Society's Director of Governmental Affairs. Laura has a strong academic background in environmental science, which was her undergraduate major, and she also holds a law degree from the George Washington University Law School, where she focused on environmental law. Laura manages The Wildlife Society's government and partnerships programs.

The Wildlife Society's is focused on creating a world where humans and wildlife can co-exist by advancing science-driven habitat management and conservation. The Society's mission is to represent and serve the professional community of scientists, managers, educators, technicians, planners, and others who work actively to study, manage, and conserve wildlife and its habitats worldwide.

Given Laura's environmental law background and her professional focus, we are very excited to have her moderate Section VI of Anthill: The Nokobee Wars. Welcome, Laura Bies!
