About

Amy Vedder worked as a practitioner of international wildlife and wild lands conservation for 35 years before coming to Yale’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies in 2013.   She undertook a variety of roles, having conducted ecological research, conceived and directed comprehensive conservation projects and continent-wide programs, and advised governments and non-governmental organizations on conservation strategies and policies.  Major subjects of focus during her management internationally and nationally include issues of local participation and governance, recognition of conservation values, landscape approaches, large-impact development, and the politics of wilderness/protected area designation.
