       As a young boy in the 1960s, John Hartig relished his days spent      
       fishing in the Detroit River in southeast Michigan. Today, the U.S.   
       Fish and Wildlife Service announced that the 51 year-old Trenton,     
       Mich., native will become the first full-time refuge manager at the   
       Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge.                          
                                                                             
                                                                             
       Hartig begins his new job July 10. As refuge manager, he will         
       oversee operations on North America's only international wildlife     
       refuge which will conserve, protect and restore habitat for 29        
       species of waterfowl, 65 kinds of fish and 300 species of migratory   
       birds on more than 5,000 acres along the lower Detroit River in       
       southeast Michigan. Hartig replaces Doug Brewer who was on            
       temporary assignment from Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge in Ohio.    
                                                                             
                                                                             
       Until a more permanent refuge office can be established, Hartig       
       will be stationed at the Environmental Protection Agency's Large      
       Lakes Research Station on Grosse Ile.                                 
                                                                             
                                                                             
       " I'm thrilled to be a member of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service   
       and help shape the future of this magnificent resource," Hartig       
       said. "The Detroit River refuge is a huge source of community         
       pride. Over the decades, many local residents have lost their         
       connection to the outdoors. The refuge is helping people to           
       reconnect to the river and its resources. Best of all, there is a     
       huge base of local support for the refuge and what it brings to       
       southeast Michigan."                                                  
                                                                             
                                                                             
       Hartig brings more than 25 years of experience in environmental       
       science and natural resource management to his new position. For      
       the past five years, he has served as River Navigator for the         
       Greater Detroit American Heritage River Initiative. As River          
       Navigator he worked with Detroit River communities and businesses     
       to identify and implement high priority projects that foster          
       environmental stewardship, promote environmentally sustainable        
       economic development, and celebrate history and culture. Prior to     
       becoming River Navigator, he spent 14 years working for the           
       International Joint Commission on the Canada-U.S. Great Lakes Water

       " I have enjoyed being Detroit River Navigator and it's good to       
       know that the momentum we have achieved for the American Heritage     
       River (AHR) will continue under the direction of the Metropolitan     
       Affairs Coalition (MAC)," Hartig said. "As refuge manager I see MAC   
       and its AHR Initiative as a valuable partner in collaborating to      
       enhance the river and wildlife habitat."                              
                                                                             
                                                                             
       He has authored or co-authored more than 70 publications on the       
       Great Lakes, including co-editing the book, "UNDER RAPS: Toward       
       Grassroots Ecological Democracy in the Great Lakes Basin" and a new   
       book, "Honoring Our Detroit River, Caring for Our Home." John has     
       received numerous awards for his many years of work on Great Lakes'   
       issues including the 2003 Anderson-Everett Award from the             
       International Association for Great Lakes Research, the 2003          
       Community Luminary Award from the DTE Energy Foundation, and the      
       1993 Sustainable Development Award for Civic Leadership from Global   
       Tomorrow Coalition.                                                   
                                                                             
                                                                             
       " John brings very unique talents to a unique wildlife refuge.        
       We're fortunate to have him as part of the Service's refuge team."    
       said Barry Christenson, area refuge supervisor for the U.S. Fish      
       and Wildlife Service's Great Lakes-Big Rivers Region headquarters     
       in Minneapolis, Minn.                                                 
                                                                             
                                                                             
       The Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge was established in    
       December 2001. The refuge is the result of an unprecedented           
       partnership of government agencies, businesses, conservation          
       groups, landowners and private citizens on both sides of the          
       border. Located at the intersection of the Atlantic and Mississippi   
       Flyways, an estimated three million ducks, geese, swans and coots     
       migrate annually through the region. More than 300,000 diving ducks   
       stop each year to feed on wild celery beds in the river. Despite      
       being a heavily traveled corridor for Great Lakes' shipping, the      
       Detroit River is also known for its duck hunting and fishing,         
       activities the Service plans to continue on parts of the refuge.      
                                                                             
                                                                             
       The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the principal federal agency    
       responsible for conserving, protecting and enhancing fish, wildlife   
       and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the       
       American people. The Service manages the 95-million-acre National     
       Wildlife Refuge System, which encompasses 544 national wildlife       
       refuges, thousands of small wetlands and other special management     
       areas. It also operates 69 national fish hatcheries, 63 Fish and      
       Wildlife Management offices and 81 ecological services field          
       stations. The agency enforces federal wildlife laws, administers      
       the Endangered Species Act, manages migratory bird populations,       
       restores nationally significant fisheries, conserves and restores     
       wildlife habitat such as wetlands, and helps foreign governments      
       with their conservation efforts. It also oversees the Federal         
       Assistance program, which distributes hundreds of millions of         
       dollars in excise taxes on fishing and hunting equipment to state     
       fish and wildlife agencies.
