The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) named Jennifer Newmark as Wildlife Diversity Division Administrator. The position oversees the division responsible for Nevada's diverse wildlife heritage through the protection, management and restoration of non-game species.

Newmark has nearly 16 years of experience in increasingly responsible roles working with Nevada's wildlife. In her most recent position, she served as the administrator of the Nevada Natural Heritage Program, an independent state agency within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

Newmark holds a master of science in biology from Boston University and a bachelors of science in conservation biology from the University of Nevada, Reno. Additionally, she is the U.S. Section Council Representative for NatureServe, a network connecting science with conservation, consisting of natural heritage programs and conservation data centers found across the United States, Canada and Latin America.

NDOW protects, restores and manages fish and wildlife, and promotes fishing, hunting, and boating safety. NDOW's wildlife and habitat conservation efforts are primarily funded by sportsmen's license and conservation fees and a federal surcharge on hunting and fishing gear. For more information, visit
