COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina Senate has approved the new leader of the state wildlife agency.

The Senate voted unanimously Thursday to make Robert Boyles Jr. the new director of the state Department of Natural Resources.

The agency’s board had recommended Boyles at its November meeting.

Boyles has been interim director of DNR since May 2019, when former director Alvin Taylor retired. Boyles has spent more than 22 years with the agency, working as deputy director of the Marine Services division since 2003.

Boyles said he is humbled and excited for his new job and will work with everyone to assure durable natural resources for South Carolina.

“We have many challenges, but I am confident that we can work together to help improve conservation of our natural resources for us and for our children,” Boyles said in a statement.
