As National Audubon Society’s Assistant Director of Government Relations, Taldi Walter works on public policy and land management issues related to Alaska’s public lands.
Prior to returning to Audubon’s Public Policy Office, Taldi worked in the Audubon’s Alaska office in Anchorage as the Communications and Policy Associate, where she worked to communicate Audubon’s science and policy work through electronic and print media, outreach, and education activities. Prior to that, Taldi worked with federal officials, Congress, and Audubon volunteers throughout the United States to increase awareness and motivate protection of priority public lands in Alaska. In this capacity she delivered more than 110 presentations about Alaska in 39 states.
Taldi received her MS in biology from the University of Central Arkansas. Her thesis took her to the Atlantic rainforest of Brazil, where she studied tropical and invasive species ecology.
