Mr. Yuen, manager of the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge Complex, has been selected as the recipient of the Paul Kroegel Award for Refuge Manager of the Year for his conservation vision and ability to give his staff the space to learn, grow, and ultimately do great work. Yuen began his career in his native Hawaii in 1984 as a Cooperative Education Program student with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In 1992, Yuen helped to establish the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge and the Guam National Wildlife Refuge. Always an out-of-the-box thinker, Yuen was one of the first U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service managers to provide work experience opportunities for wounded military service members as they transitioned from the military to the civilian workforce. And beyond Yuen’s skill as a manager, his personal touch, communication skills and casual humor are his trademarks for solving complicated issues. Read Mr. Yuen’s full press release here.
