Rebecca Watters is the executive director of the Wolverine Foundation and the founder of the Mongolian Wolverine Project. She’s a wildlife biologist and social scientist who works at the intersection of culture, human rights and conservation. Her work has taken her to numerous countries, most recently Mongolia, where she studies wolverines and other climate sensitive wildlife in collaboration with the rangers and staff of the Ulaan Taiga Protected Areas in northern Huvsgul province. The goal of Rebecca’s work is to work with local communities to create effective conservation strategies that also preserve human communities and cultures.
