Brian Perkes is the Executive Director for Voices of Wildlife. He recently served on the Utah Cougar Advisory Board, representing the non-consumptive viewpoint. From this experience, Brian developed a unique understanding of common state wildlife management policies and the various key elements involved in making those decisions. Often, he noticed that predators were being ‘managed’ mainly for the benefit of certain special interest groups; using archaic and distorted views towards predators, rather than relying on scientific evidence to make reasonable and appropriately qualified decisions. In discussing these matters with Brian’s wife Sheri and their friend Scott Bye; they decided to form Voices of Wildlife, with the goal of protecting the lives of wild animals from persecution.
Brian has a background in real estate and currently works as a broker. He draws from years of experience working with people as well as managing a successful real estate team and personal investment group. Before entering the business world, Brian proudly served as a United States Marine. He loves to travel, ski, hike, climb, mountain bike, scuba dive, and is always game for an adventure. Brian is passionate about protecting wildlife, nature and the beautiful world we live in, and strongly believes in contributing towards the greater good of all things.
