Kathryn S. Fuller, former president and chief executive of World Wildlife Fund
The Kathryn Fuller Science for Nature Fund supports and harnesses the most promising conservation science research and puts it into practice. Named in honor of the former president and CEO of WWF-US, the fund supports an annual Science for Nature Symposium featuring global leaders in science, policy, and conservation. Additionally, a regular seminar series provides a regular forum for the conservation community.
Behavior change has not yet been extensively incorporated into conservation practice planning, design, or overall thinking. On December 4, 2017, this year's Fuller Symposium brought together a diverse array of experts from the behavior sciences to tackle how we can better integrate behavioral strategies and interventions into conservation practice to produce more effective outcomes for nature.
The event, presented in collaboration with National Geographic, was free and open to the public. It took place at the National Geographic Society's Grosvenor Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
