Washington, D.C., United States
IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare – www.ifaw.org) announced today the appointment of Jeffrey Flocken as director of its Washington, D.C. office. In his new role, Flocken will lead collaborative efforts with national and international wildlife conservation, animal welfare and scientific groups to develop further IFAW programs, initiatives and campaigns. He will also provide direction for all political activity, public support and public relations in the D.C. area.
Flocken comes to IFAW from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Division of International Conservation, where he was responsible for policy and outreach. He replaces Cindy Milburn, Senior Advisor, for IFAW’s international headquarters, who has been serving as acting director for the DC office.
 
“Jeff’s 13 years of experience with both legislative campaigns and conservation programs give him a breadth and depth of experience across campaigning, education, fundraising and management functions that will serve IFAW’s Washington D.C. office well,” said IFAW’s President Frederick O’Regan.
 
In addition to tenures with the National Wildlife Federation, Greenpeace, and Conservation International, Flocken serves as Co-Chair of Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leaders—an organization he founded to train and mentor up-and-coming leaders in the wildlife conservation field. He has also worked and studied in Australia and Kenya.
 
Flocken graduated from the University of Michigan and holds a Juris Doctor from Wayne State University School of Law.
