John Lloyd

Independent Consultant on Biodiversity & Conservation (Zoology not elsewhere classified)

Vermont, USA

I work on behalf of clients from civil society, industry, and government to develop and advance initiatives that address pressing problems in sustainable development and biodiversity conservation. To do so, I combine deep technical expertise gained as a practicing scientist, experience leading diverse teams of scientists and practitioners, outstanding skills as a science editor and writer, and a well-honed familiarity with the opportunities and challenges of working at the science-policy interface. I have also worked as a consultant on issues of science and conservation to organizations and governments throughout the world, including WWF International, the Luc Hoffman Institute, USDA Forest Service, and the Canadian Wildlife Service.
