Fredi’s commitment to Nevada’s wildlife resources will be recognized during the February Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioner’s meeting in Las Vegas, where he will receive the award.
In 2010 Fredi was responsible for an estimated $613,000 for predator management. The projects proposed by Fredi are funded using the Department of Wildlife’s Wildlife Heritage Trust Accounts. Fredi spent a great deal of time planning for the enhancement of native mule deer in Nevada not only in 2010 but in the last 20 years, Donald Mosley of Las Vegas wrote in his nomination of Fredi.
The Wayne E. Kirch Conservation Award is given annually to recipients who have demonstrated significant results towards conservation, management or enhancement of wildlife. It is named in memory of Wayne E. Kirch, who served on the Fish and Game Commission for over 25 years, the longest tenure on the board since its inception in 1877. Kirch, of Las Vegas, died in 1989.
