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.

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.
