About Guest Speaker: Thomas Lovejoy, Ph.D.

Dr. Thomas Lovejoy

Photo courtesty of Dr. Thomas E. Lovejoy

We are honored to host Dr. Thomas E. Lovejoy as the featured speaker for our 2012 presentation. An innovative and accomplished conservation biologist, he helped establish much of our understanding of biodiversity.

Dr. Lovejoy holds the Biodiversity Chair at the Heinz Center for Science, Economics, and the Environment in Washington, D.C., and was elected University Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at George Mason University in 2010. Spanning the political spectrum, he served on science and environmental councils under the Reagan, Bush, and Clinton Administrations. He was the World Bank’s Chief Biodiversity Advisor and Lead Specialist for the Environment for Latin America and the Caribbean as well as Senior Advisor to the President of the United Nations Foundation. At the core of Dr. Lovejoy’s many influential positions are his seminal ideas, which have formed and strengthened the field of conservation biology. For example, in the 1980s, he brought international attention to the world’s tropical rainforests, particularly to the Brazilian Amazon where he has worked since 1965. He also developed the now-ubiquitous “debt-for-nature” swap programs and led the Minimum Critical Size of Ecosystems Project. He founded the popular long-term television series, Nature. The recipient of numerous prestigious awards, Dr. Lovejoy has influenced a wide spectrum of fields: from science and science education to environmental policy and decision making on a global scale.
