Dr. Jodi Hilty, Executive Director of the Wildlife Conservation Society North America Program, will talk about the recovery of wildlife, including the grizzly bear, woverine, and jaguar.
Since 2007, Dr. Jodi Ann Hilty has been providing leadership on the scientific applications utilized to address four major natural resource management and conservation issues across North America. These areas include promoting healthy communities to sustain a healthy environment, identifying and protecting wildlife corridors allowing species room to roam, reducing the threats of natural resource extraction and addressing the myriad of challenges climate change poses to wildlife and wild places. Overseeing a staff of 60 working in some of the most remote locations, Dr. Hilty promotes the active engagement of WCS in the larger scientific and conservation communities, strengthens partnerships with agencies and organizations, and cultivates the next generation of conservation science leaders. Trained as a conservation biologist at the University of California, Berkley, her passion is focused on finding creative, science-based solutions to resolve critical conflicts between humans and the natural world.
