Event Details

World Wildlife Fund is coming to New York City!

Climate change is profoundly altering life on our planet. In response, WWF creates tools to assess climate vulnerability and build capacity to develop climate-smart approaches to conservation. Join World Wildlife Fund and hear from Dr. Nikhil Advani, WWF’s lead specialist for Climate, Communities and Biodiversity, to explore how climate change is affecting ecosystems around the world, and how, together, we are creating a brighter future for the wildlife we care about.


Nikhil Advani
Lead Specialist , Climate, Communities and Biodiversity

Dr. Nikhil Advani leads WWF's work on climate, communities and biodiversity. This includes conducting vulnerability assessments and developing adaptation strategies for WWF priority species, as well as researching how rural communities are being affected by changes in weather and climate, how they are responding, and how their responses impact biodiversity. Based on these findings, we are developing and implementing projects that help wildlife and human communities persist in a changing climate.

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.

Partners in Conservation

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.
