Anne Carlson is a Senior Climate Adaptation Specialist based in Choteau, Montana.
From this corner of the Crown of the Continent, she seeks to build resilience to the impacts of our changing climate in partnership with tribal communities, religious leaders, state and federal agency staff, conservation partners, regional scientists, university staff, and the general public - all based on the best available science and at the scale of entire landscapes.
Prior to joining The Wilderness Society in 2009, Anne spent 15 years developing research and conservation projects on numerous large and small carnivore, primate, elephant, and antelope species across sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia with her colleagues at Cambridge University and the San Diego Zoo. She is a Fulbright Scholar, and earned Master’s and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1995 and 2000, respectively.
Anne and her husband live with way too many animals, and spend as much of their spare time as possible out in Montana’s mountains and rivers hiking, camping, hunting, skiing, and wildlife-watching.
