Quail Forever and its partners are pleased to announce the hiring of Rebbecka Ramos as its coordinating wildlife biologist in Hebbronville, Texas. Ramos will work with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Rio Grande Joint Venture, Oaks and Prairie Joint Venture, and other partners to provide technical assistance to Texas landowners interested in enhancing or creating wildlife habitat.
Launched in 2004, the Farm Bill Biologist Partnership has provided a valuable benefit across the country to landowners who are interested in voluntary conservation program enrollment. Commonly referred to as the “One Stop Shop” for anything conservation or wildlife-related on private lands, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever biologists possess the knowledge of federal, state, and local programs to assist landowners in finding the right program to meet their personal habitat and land use goals.
“Rebbecka is a skilled biologist and will deliver great service to our customers, Texas farmers, ranchers and landowners,” stated Jordan Menge, Quail Forever’s range and wildlife coordinator in Texas. “We are excited to have added Rebbecka to our Texas conservation team and look forward to the impact that she will deliver.”
Ramos was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley where she found herself constantly fascinated with the wonderful array of wildlife found in South Texas. From coyotes and chachalacas to armadillos and quail, her childhood was filled with a love for the outdoors and nature. Ramos attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She interned at wildlife rehabilitation clinics, bird conservancies and farm sanctuaries, and found her passion for animal and habitat conservation. She is looking forward to serving Texan communities by improving and conserving the future of wildlife and the outdoors.
“It is an honor to help deliver the mission of Quail Forever in South Texas where I was born and raised,” said Ramos.
Ramos will be based out of the Hebbronville USDA Field Office. She can be reached at email@example.com or (361) 527-3253.
