World Wildlife Fund is coming to Seattle!
2016 marked the half-way point in our global campaign to double wild tiger populations by the next Chinese Year of the Tiger in 2022. Hear from WWF’s Senior Vice President for Wildlife Conservation, Ginette Hemley, about how the progress we are making for tigers is changing the face of conservation. This is a story of conservation hope you don’t want to miss.
Senior Vice President, Wildlife Conservation, WWF
Ginette Hemley oversees WWF’s programs to secure a future in the wild for the world’s most endangered and iconic species. Under Hemley’s leadership, WWF is designing and executing high-impact strategies for wildlife protection and species recovery, including community-based conservation approaches; eliminating urgent threats such as the illegal wildlife trade by applying new technologies and reducing demand; and mobilizing large-scale public, political, and financial support for long-term species and habitat conservation. Previously, she served as WWF’s senior vice president for conservation strategy and science and as managing vice president for conservation. She also directed WWF’s wildlife trade program, TRAFFIC. She received a BS in biology from the College of William and Mary and is an ELIAS Fellow associated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Partners in Conservation is a community of committed supporters joining forces to create a brighter future for wildlife, people and the planet. By pooling your contributions with those of other Partners, you ensure a greater impact as WWF fights to secure a future for animals in their natural habitats, from pandas to elephants to marine turtles. WWF helped bring back the Amur tiger in Asia and the black rhino in Africa from the edge of extinction. We are giving dwindling populations of black-footed ferrets and river dolphins a second chance. Our work is far from done, and WWF constantly strives to protect the species—and the habitats—we all care about.
