Marion Larson, MassWildlife
Dr. Jonathan Regosin has been promoted to Deputy Director, filling a void that was created when Dr. Mark Tisa moved to the Directorship a few months ago. Over the past seven years, Jon has served as Chief of Conservation Science for the agency’s Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program (NHESP). As Chief of Conservation Science, Jon managed NHESP’s science and habitat management programs. Previously, he was the Regulatory Review Manager and the Reptile and Amphibian Biologist for NHESP. Jon received a MS in Ecology and Evolution from the University of Chicago and a PhD in Biology from Tufts University. His research has focused on a variety of species including protected species such as blue-spotted salamanders, northern red-bellied cooters, and piping plovers. As Deputy Director, Jon looks forward to working with Director Tisa to advance agency priorities including managing rare habitats across the state and expanding opportunities for hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts to experience the outdoors.
