New Fish and Wildlife Service Director Nominated

President promotes deputy director of the agency for Senate confirmation.

On Thursday, President Biden announced that he selected Martha Williams to serve as the next Director of the Fish and Wildlife Service. She currently is the Deputy Director of the Service, having served in that role since January of this year. The appointment now requires the approval of the Senate before Deputy Director Williams can begin her role. 

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland supported the appointment, saying, “Martha brings with her decades of experience, deep knowledge, and a passion for conservation, wildlife management, and natural resources stewardship. I look forward to continuing to work with her as the Department carries out its mission to protect America’s most precious resources and as we answer President Biden’s call to action to conserve, connect, and restore the lands, waters, and wildlife upon which we all depend on.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the senators would have wisdom as they evaluate and vote on this appointment.
  • For the deputy director as she goes through the confirmation process and serves in the Interior Department.
  • For Secretary Haaland seek God’s direction on how to best preserve His creation.
