Partners in Conversation with WWF Experts

June 2022

In June 2022 we hosted multiple sessions during the virtual Partners in Conversation with WWF Experts event. Recordings of the sessions are available below—watch to learn more about the conservation progress your support makes possible.

Arctic, with Elisabeth Kruger, Manager, Arctic Wildlife

The Arctic is a region like no other. Its diverse landscapes are home to more than 4 million people and an abundance of wildlife but, due to climate change and other challenges, the Arctic faces an uncertain future. In this session, Elisabeth discusses WWF’s efforts to save iconic species like polar bears, bowhead whales, and narwhals and answers questions about wildlife and conservation in this majestic corner of the world.

Wildlife and Climate, with Dr. Nikhil Advani, Director, Climate, Communities and Wildlife

Dr. Nikhil Advani's work at the intersection of climate change and wildlife conservation is always a favorite among our Partners. His recent focus on Nature-Based Tourism and Climate Crowd projects in Africa were the highlight of this presentation.

Policy, with Stephanie Cappa, Deputy Director, Policy and Government Affairs

WWF’s Policy and Government Affairs team works to advance and amplify our conservation priorities through Congressional legislation and U.S. Government policy. Watch this session to learn how WWF is working to influence federal conservation policy in 2022 and beyond.

Oceans, with Mike Crispino, Director of Strategy and Communications and Deputy Lead for Oceans

Billions of people’s lives are sustained by healthy oceans. Marine protection and resilient coastal ecosystems create essential habitat for wildlife and numerous benefits for people and our planet. Watch as Mike discusses WWF’s work to sustain our oceans and transform our relationship with life below the surface.

Plastics, with Erin Simon, Head, Plastic Waste and Business

WWF’s No Plastic in Nature campaign got a major boost with the recent UN Environment Assembly agreement to end plastic pollution through the development of a legally binding treaty. In this session, Erin speaks about this historic agreement and answers questions about what WWF is doing to ensure its success.
