Maine’s lead biologist taking federal government post

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — The director of Maine’s Bureau of Resource Management is stepping down.

Kenneth Elowe has served since 1998 in the post that’s responsible for habitat, wildlife and fisheries management, as well as wildlife sanctuaries and wildlife management areas.

Commissioner Roland “Danny” Martin said Friday that Elowe is leaving on July 31 to take a post with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Hadley, Mass. Martin described Elowe as “an outstanding spokesman for the agency.”

Last year, Elowe helped celebrate the removal of the bald eagle from Maine’s Endangered and Threatened Species List after a 30-year effort to restore eagle populations.
