Danielle Tedesco has focused on the importance of cultivating partnerships to create and implement mutually beneficial and sustainable wildlife conservation strategies. Her commitment to wildlife conservation as been demonstrated through work with the U.S. Peace Corps in Uganda as a Natural Resources Program Manager for the Uganda Wildlife Authority, as an International Environmental Analyst with the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative-Environment and Natural Resources, and more recently as a Senior Program Officer with the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF). Danielle’s current portfolio consists of eclectic support for AWF’s species programs, including the International Gorilla Conservation Program. Degrees in Natural Resources Management and Environmental Policy Analysis complement her professional conservation expertise. As a EWCL Fellow, Ms. Tedesco hopes to help foster a deeper understanding of, and appreciation for, collaboration at various levels for both national and international wildlife conservation progress.
