JUNEAU (AP) -- Gov. Tony Knowles announced the appointment of three new members to the state Board of Game on Wednesday.
He named Caleb Pungowiyi of Kotzebue, Michelle Sparck of Bethel and Bruce Baker of Juneau to three-year terms on the board.
They fill the expired terms of Michael Fleagle of McGrath, Greg Roczicka of Bethel and Greg Streveler of Gustavus.
Pungowiyi is a special adviser for Alaska Native affairs to the Marine Mammal Commission. He previously served as president of Kawerak Inc., a regional nonprofit organization serving the Bering Straits region.
Sparck has worked as a legislative liaison for the Association of Village Council Presidents for the past five years.
Baker is a former deputy director of the Department of Fish and Game's Habitat Division who now works as an independent natural resource consultant.
The new members will be able to vote at next Game Board meeting, March 8-18 in Fairbanks.
The appointments must be confirmed by the Legislature, which typically acts on them toward the end of the legislative session in May.
