In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, Nate Eaton speaks with Gregg Losinski, the longtime regional spokesman for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. Losinski recently announced that he is retiring after working with the department for nearly 35 years.

Losinski began his career with Idaho State University in 1983 where he served as Director of Student Activities and earned a Master’s Degree in Education.

He began his IDFG career in Lewiston as part of a Bonneville Power Authority funded salmon enforcement project. While in Lewiston he became a Level 1 enforcement personnel, a position with similar training and expectations as a Conservation Officer.

Over the years, he was one of the last general department staff to hold this classification because of the increased training required of enforcement personnel. This training allowed him to serve as the only IDFG person on the Olympic Police Force for the 2002 Winter Games in Utah.

In addition to teaching and media work, Losinski was very active in grizzly bear recovery and working to reduce human/bear conflicts both domestically and internationally.
