NWF has announced that Chris Adamo will serve as Senior Fellow for Conservation Innovation
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The National Wildlife Federation, America’s largest wildlife conservation and education organization, has announced that Chris Adamo will serve as Senior Fellow for Conservation Innovation. Adamo comes to the National Wildlife Federation after serving the Obama Administration as the Chief of Staff for the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Adamo will be working out of the Federation’s National Advocacy Center in Washington, DC, and will be partnering with the organization’s state affiliates and regional offices to develop innovative approaches for recovering America’s wildlife populations and working with farmers and local governments to advance watershed-scale restoration priorities.
Prior to his tenure at the Obama White House from 2015 until January 2017, Adamo spent a decade in the U.S. Senate advising members of both parties on various conservation issues. A passionate hunter and angler, Adamo finished his tenure as the staff director for the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee and helped Senator Stabenow (D-MI) write the 2014 Farm Bill.
“Chris Adamo is among the most effective conservationists in our nation,” said Collin O’Mara, president and chief executive officer of the National Wildlife Federation. “He embodies the rare combination of policy expertise, conservation ethic, and results-oriented pragmatism needed to overcome the greatest conservation challenges of our time. From the Senate to the White House, Chris has spent his career working to forge bipartisan consensus in Washington and secure results on-the-ground through market-based solutions. At a time when one-third of all wildlife are at-risk and America’s water challenges seem intractable, there has never been a more important time for people like Chris to advance innovative solutions that bring science-based policies together with private capital investment. The National Wildlife Federation could not be more excited to have him join the Federation family.”
