Natural Capital Hub Co-manager, Cambridge Conservation Initiative

With a degree in biology and a PhD in anthropology, Tom's career began with a focus on large carnivore ecology and conservation, spending over a decade in the field in Africa and Asia on cheetah and tiger conservation with the Zoological Society of London. But over time Tom grew increasingly interested in the specific role of business in conservation so he obtained an MBA from the Judge Business School. Since then Tom has worked for the World Bank, The Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, WWF and Fauna & Flora International (FFI) on various aspects of the relationship between economic activity and the environment. He now works as the co-coordinator for CCI’s various work around ‘natural capital’ – a way of talking and thinking about the value of nature in economic terms – as well as continuing as a Senior Specialist for FFI.
