WildLandscapes International is dedicated to conserving large and connected land and seascapes that are globally significant to wildlife. Our strategy is to empower communities, conservationists, indigenous peoples, ranchers 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 land conservation experience and a proven track record of securing public and private capital to protect wildlife, place, and ways of life.
In the World Heritage Site, the Greater Everglades Ecosystem, we are working with ranchers, sportsmen, local communities and conservationists to establish two national conservation areas that will protect Florida ranches, restore endangered species such as the Florida panther, improve the water quality and quantity of the Everglades for the benefit of 8.5 million people, and to develop climate change resiliency.
In the Alaskan Arctic, we are working with Native people, sportsmen, conservationists, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Friends of Alaska National Wildlife Refuges, to build an Alaska public land and conservation constituency. Our focus is to invest in sustainable Alaskan economies such as ecotourism to bolster the standing of National Wildlife Refuges and empower diverse stakeholders to take action to protect their public lands.
We are working with ranchers, communities, the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect the ranching way of life, invest in local rural economies, and restore wildlife populations of the greater sage-grouse, pygmy rabbit, cut-throat trout, and pronghorn antelope.
We are working to protect, develop climate change resiliency strategies, increase management capacity, and to build a diverse stake holder constituency for the 600 million acres of Pacific Remote National Wildlife Refuges and Monuments. These protected areas conserve some of the most diverse and healthy reefs on planet earth, and support 29 million sea birds, as well as globally important populations of sharks, pelagic fish, and marine mammals.
In Northeast India, we are developing the science and strategy to establish and implement a comprehensive protected area network with wildlife corridors. This biological hotspot has the world’s largest populations of tigers, Asian elephants, and one-horned rhinos, with stunning bird diversity. Conserving this region is key to the watershed of the mighty Brahmaputra River that drains into the mangrove forests of the Sundurbans. We work in partnership with the University of Florida, the Wildlife Conservation Society, Aaranyak, and the Forest Departments of Assam, Nagaland, and Arunachal Pradesh.

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.

Elephants, grizzly bears, yellowfin tuna, tigers, and sage-grouse all need large conserved landscapes, and they need your help.
