A Corpus Christi native, Johnny Arredondo has been a Wildlife Biologist for TPWD for the last 11 years.  He has a wide range of experience working with numerous wildlife species in south and west Texas and with non-game threatened and endangered species in the Edwards Plateau.  Mr. Arredondo will provide information on CWD and recent surveillance efforts conducted by TPWD.
