Roger E McManus
Roger grew up in Tucson and the Sonoran Desert, and this ecosystem is the home he returned to from much of his career in Washington D.C. He worked in the first Endangered Species Office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in two Administrations of the Executive Office of the President of the United States, and in the Office of the Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior. He was the CEO of the Center for Marine Conservation for twenty years, and was a senior staff member for Conservation International.
He is fervent in his support of the Save the Scenic Santa Ritas as the most effective advocate for the region’s biological and human communities.
