Politics in Public Lands Management
An early interest in hunting and fishing inspired Steve Gallizioli to pursue an undergraduate degree in fish and wildlife management after completing his service with the US Navy during World War II. Upon graduating from Oregon State University in 1950, Mr. Gallizioli worked briefly for the Oregon Department of Fish and Game before joining the Arizona Game and Fish Department where he remained for thirty-two years. Throughout his long career, Mr. Gallizioli became well-known for his papers and presentations in which he described the devastating consequences of overgrazing by livestock on wildlife habitat. Subsequent to his retirement from the department as chief of its Wildlife Management Division in 1983, he served on the board of the Arizona Wildlife Federation, and was its newsletter editor.

In this video, Steve Gallizioli describes how politics within the Forest Service adversely affected the agency’s management of livestock grazing on the Coronado National Forest (Arizona) in 1951.

Recorded in September 2004. This video is an excerpt from Steve Gallizioli’s interview in Western Turf Wars: The Politics of Public Lands Ranching.
