WASHINGTON, D.C. — Laura Daniel Davis, the newly-appointed acting deputy secretary of the Department of the Interior, will provide essential, effective, and responsible leadership for the agencies stewarding our wildlife, public lands and waters, and natural resources.
“At a moment when our wildlife, lands, waters, and resources face unprecedented challenges, the U.S. Department of the Interior needs steady, experienced, and responsible leadership. Everyone who has worked alongside Laura Daniel Davis has seen firsthand that she is immensely qualified to help steward our wildlife and natural resources,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “We look forward to working with her in this new role.”
Davis, who has served in various leadership roles at the Interior Department in the Biden Administration, previously worked as chief of policy and advocacy at the National Wildlife Federation after serving as chief of staff to Secretaries of the Interior Ken Salazar and Sally Jewell.
