I have been a member of the Cat Specialist Group since 1989, and from 1994 to 2016 served as the IUCN Red List Coordinator for cats.  Author with former Cat SG Chairman Peter Jackson of the Cat SG’s 1996 Cat Action Plan (Wild Cats: Status Survey and Conservation Action Plan), I have worked on and written about many different aspects of cat conservation, including conservation planning, anti-poaching, community partners, fund-raising, and status assessments. Having served as a consultant to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) and the TRAFFIC wildlife trade monitoring network, I am now focused primarily on issues around the illegal wildlife trade, and travel widely by motorglider from my solar-powered home base in the Maine woods.
