Judy Camuso’s career began at Maine Audubon and she has been engaging people with wildlife ever since. Knowing that people will conserve and protect the things they love, her mission became to share her passion for nature.
An important opportunity led her to become Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s first female regional biologist and later to become the Director of the Department and most recently Commissioner. This amazing woman is a licensed bird bander and an avid birder, as well as a hunter, who canoes, hikes and bikes. Camuso is a leader in protecting Maine’s inland fish, and wildlife.
We hear that visitors to Maine annually contribute more than a billion dollars to our economy in their pursuit of wildlife-related activities. Governor Mills’ appointment of Judy Camuso to become Commissioner of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife gives her an incredible opportunity to spread her enthusiasm and passion.
Camuso is respected for her science-based management decisions regarding Maine’s inland fish, wildlife, and non-game habitats. We look forward to hearing updates on endangered species as well as our iconic species like loons, moose and arctic char.
