Program Officer, Policy and Government Affairs
Anthony is a program officer for policy and government affairs at WWF, focusing primarily on pathways to mitigate plastic pollution and incentivize the use of recycled materials. This includes working with the Federal government to implement necessary reforms to our recycling system and pairing WWF’s strategic private sector engagement with public sector action. Anthony serves on the steering committee of the US Plastics Pact, a convening of over 80 organizations to combat plastic waste, and co-leads the Pact’s policy workstream. Aside from thinking about waste management, Anthony assists with the management of the policy and government affairs social media outreach on key priorities.
Anthony started as an intern with WWF while completing his undergraduate studies in 2018 and returned to WWF in 2019. Originally working with the oceans team on policy interventions needed to combat illegal fishing, Anthony transitioned to his current portfolio. A self-proclaimed politics junkie, Anthony is impassioned by politics and its crossroads with environmentalism. A lifelong advocate for the environment, Anthony has been involved with environmental causes ranging from building a life-size polar bear out of plastic bags to showcase the number of bags the average family uses in a year, to his own Eagle Scout project that prevented harmful chemicals from polluting waterways in his hometown. Originally from Massachusetts, Anthony now resides in Silver Spring, Md., with his fiancé, three dogs, and two cats.
