WildLandscapes International works with diverse stakeholders and communities to conserve big wild places for wildlife and people.

 
 

WildLandscapes International is dedicated to conserving large and connected land and seascapes that are globally significant to wildlife and locally important to people. Our strategy is to empower communities, conservationists, Native peoples, ranchers, foresters, fishermen, and government agencies to protect habitat for wide-ranging wildlife. To meet the challenges of scale and complexity, WildLandscapes is science-based, collaborative, efficient and entrepreneurial. We bring more than 30 years of conservation experience and a proven track record of securing public and private capital to protect wildlife, place, and ways of life.

Landscape Conservation


 

 

Landscape Conservation


 

 

WildLandscapes International works to empower local partners to conserve globally important North American landscapes. This collaboration involves ranching communities, Native peoples, sportsmen, foresters, fishermen, local governments, and conservation organizations.

Our North American work is both an intensive and long-term effort for delivering substantial and lasting results. We focus on investing in rural and Native economies, conserving wide-ranging wildlife such as elk, caribou, pronghorn, and pelagic fish, birds, and cetaceans, restoring endangered species, and developing resiliency strategies to protect landscapes and wildlife from the effects of climate change.

WildLandscapes currently works in the Alaska, the Malheur-Sheldon-Hart landscape in the Great Basin, and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Alaska

Establish wildlife corridors between National Parks and Wildlife Refuges of the Alaskan Arctic to allow for natural migration of wide-ranging wildlife and fish. Facilitate collaboration between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Native people to maintain healthy populations of polar bears and four species of eider ducks.

WildLandscapes empowers grassroots organizations to protect the Malheur-Sheldon-Hart landscape of the American West for pronghorn, sage grouse, pygmy rabbits, and golden cutthroat trout.

Malheur-Sheldon-Hart

Protect wildlife, ecological connectivity, rural economies, and the ranching way of life of the 3.2-million-acre Malheur-Sheldon-Hart landscape.

WildLandscapes works with local partners to protect the health of the Jackson elk herd through restoring migration corridors.

International Consulting


International Consulting


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Department of State, USAID, and private U.S. foundations account for almost 90% of conservation funding available abroad. Yet grassroots organizations implementing some of the most impactful international conservation often lack capacity in the U.S. These organizations are unable to take advantage of U.S. government funding or of philanthropy hubs such as New York, Florida, and California to raise the funds necessary to meet the conservation needs of the globally important landscapes in which they work.

WildLandscapes International has identified this capacity gap as a significant impediment to sustainable grassroots conservation. We work to fill this gap through partnering with groundbreaking grassroots conservation organizations to provide capacity and expertise in fundraising, public finance, and landscape conservation that is often transferable across international boundaries.

Laikipia, Kenya

Conserve 209,000 acres of East African black rhino habitat, develop a wildlife management strategy for Kenya’s Laikipia region, and benefit Samburu pastoralists.

Northeast India has the highest density of tigers in the world, though sightings of this top predator are elusive due to the park's 10-foot-tall elephant grass.

Over his career, David has contributed to expanding the National Wildlife Refuge System by 314 million acres. He partnered with diverse stakeholders to conserve the globally important landscapes of the Everglades, Great Basin, Alaska, Hawaii, New England, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, the Russian Far East and Northeast India. He helped to lead the efforts to conserve more than 6 million acres of habitat for the New England cottontail and sage-grouse in the Great Basin and Rocky Mountains, which prevented the need to list them as endangered species. 

David has extensive experience in raising public and private capital, having secured $100 million in private capital and $9.5 billion in public funds. His work led to the protection of $642 million worth of land in the U.S. and across the globe. David is the proud recipient of the Wilburforce Foundation's Conservation Leadership Award for 2017.
