Phoebe is a conservation and global change biologist, behavioural ecologist and sustainability strategist. She is US-born and raised, but has spent most of her career in Namibia and South Africa, equally in the scientific/ academic and national/ international policy arenas. Phoebe is Lead Scientist: Climate Change BioAdaptation and Head: Biodiversity Futures at the South African National Biodiversity Institute, but is transitioning to an exciting new role as Executive Director of the Pacific Biodiversity Institute, USA and Argentina, and affiliate professor of conservation biology at University of Washington. In her spare time, she rings birds, climbs erupting volcanoes, trail-runs in mountains, adventures with her family and filmmaker husband, and exults in life on Earth.
