Bronx, NY

Kent Redford is Director of the Wildlife Conservation Society Institute and Vice President, Conservation Strategies at the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York. He completed his Bachelors at the University of California, Santa Cruz and his Doctorate at Harvard University. His dissertation research on giant anteaters and termites was conducted in the cerrado of central Brazil. After a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Florida he joined the faculty there with a joint appointment in the Center for Latin American Studies and the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation. Working with colleagues he established and helped run two interdisciplinary graduate training programs in conservation and development focusing on the training of students from tropical countries. From the University of Florida he moved to the Nature Conservancy where he directed the large Parks in Peril program and ran the conservation science department in the Latin American Division. During his five years at TNC he also helped develop guidelines for ecoregion-based conservation in both the US and internationally. In 1997 he moved to the Wildlife Conservation Society where he worked across the four international programs to help analyze and share lessons learned in the diverse ecological and political settings in which W.C.S. works. In 2002 he was appointed as Director of the WCS Institute which has the mission of synthesizing and disseminating lessons learned from the field and living collections, strengthening existing conservation, and using WCS experience and values to move the action agenda for conservation. Kent’s expertise lies in conservation strategies, park-based conservation, traditional resource use, tropical conservation, subsistence wildlife use and South American mammals.
