Event Details

World Wildlife Fund is coming to Denver!

From sea turtles in Colombia to rhinos in Nepal, climate change impacts wildlife across our planet. To help vulnerable species become more resilient to these changes, WWF launched the Wildlife Adaptation Innovation Fund. The Fund supports the testing of innovative, on-the-ground projects that move conservation beyond business-as-usual and scales promising work that mitigates the harmful effects of climate change and helps wildlife survive and thrive.  Join World Wildlife Fund and hear from Dr. Nikhil Advani, WWF’s lead specialist for Climate, Communities and Wildlife, to learn about the projects we have implemented in the last two years, and how, together, we are creating a brighter future for wildlife.

Dr. Nikhil Advani

Dr. Nikhil Advani leads WWF's work on climate, communities and wildlife. This includes researching how wildlife and rural communities are being affected by changes in weather and climate, and developing and implementing solutions to help them adapt. Nikhil's recent projects include an initiative to crowdsource this data (WWF Climate Crowd), a Wildlife and Climate assessment series, creation of a Wildlife Adaptation Innovation Fund, and he serves as an activity lead on the IUCN SSC Climate Change Specialist Group.

 

Nikhil was born and brought up in Kenya, and went on to pursue his bachelor’s degree and Ph.D. at The University of Texas at Austin. His thesis focused on gaining a better mechanistic understanding of species response to climate change, using the Glanville Fritillary butterfly as a model species. He then worked for the Nature Conservancy in Texas, prior to joining WWF in 2013.
