Governor Bobby Jindal has appointed Ann Taylor to an at-large position on the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission.

Taylor, a Luling resident, is co-owner and marketing director of Louisiana Sportsman Magazine, the state’s largest periodical covering the outdoors of the Bayou State. A graduate of Louisiana State University, Taylor has worked in the outdoor news publishing business for 24 years and is a former president of the Louisiana Outdoor Writers Association.

Taylor’s affiliations with conservation organizations include memberships in CCA Louisiana and the International Women’s Fishing Association. She is married to Tony Taylor and they have four teenage children.

The Wildlife and Fisheries Commission was created to protect, conserve, and replenish the natural resources and wildlife of the state, including all aquatic life. The commission sets all hunting, fishing and trapping seasons statewide; and establishes all regulations for the conservation of fish and wildlife and its habitat.

According to the statute, the commission is comprised of seven members appointed by the governor, subject to senate confirmation. Members include three residents of the coastal parishes of the state who are representatives of the commercial fishing and fur industries and four members from the state at large. Taylor’s term on the commission will run through 2014.
