MAYS LANDING – Atlantic City Electric lead environmental scientist Michael Garrity was recently appointed to the board of trustees of the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving rare and endangered wildlife that dwell in or migrate through New Jersey.

“Atlantic City Electric has supported Conserve Wildlife Foundation since our inception,” said Executive Director Margaret O’Gorman. “Adding Mike as a trustee strengthens this support and adds greatly to our knowledge base.”

Garrity’s job involves obtaining environmental licensing for company projects, coordinating environmental permits and representing the company on several New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection committees. With his participation, the Wildlife Federation will continue its research on wildlife species, populations and natural communities, “ultimately making New Jersey a better place for endangered and rare species,” according to ACA regional Vice President Charles Wimberg.

Garrity received a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies from Richard Stockton College and is pursuing a master’s degree at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
