Event Details

World Wildlife Fund is coming to the Twin Cities!

Home to bison and the black-footed ferret, the vast prairie of the Northern Great Plains is one of only four remaining intact temperate grasslands in the world and one of the most threatened ecological regions on the planet. Fueled by your support, WWF is partnering with ranchers and Native American tribes to keep these lands both productive and wild. Join World Wildlife Fund and hear from Martha Kauffman, Managing Director of WWF’s Northern Great Plains Program to learn how WWF works with landowners and local communities to secure a sustainable future for the remarkable wildlife, grasslands, and people of this iconic American region.

 

Martha Kauffman

Martha Kauffman is Managing Director for WWF’s Northern Great Plains Program, one of WWF’s 35 global priority places. As leader of this program, Martha engages leaders from across the region including tribal communities, ranchers, public land and wildlife managers, and other conservation organizations to conserve these important grasslands and restore abundant wildlife. A hydrologist and earth scientist by training, Martha has been focusing on solving complex environmental problems throughout her career. She has worked in the public, private, and non-profit sectors, giving her a broad perspective on conservation solutions. In her role as Managing Director for the NGP Program, Martha has built an ecoregional program focused on addressing the greatest threats (plow-up and energy development) and building partnerships with the communities that manage them. She is the current chair of the Northern Plains Conservation Network and serves on several committees. She earned a BS in applied earth sciences from Stanford University and a Master's degree in earth sciences from Montana State University.
