James Casey
Freshwater Conservation Analyst
Personally convinced that the largest challenge for future generations will be developing a way to prosper on a finite planet, James has joined the growing ranks of people seeking solutions to our emerging water crisis. He is particularly interested in the importance of freshwater resources for the health of our rivers. James has completed a Master’s degree in International Studies at the University of Northern British Columbia with a focus on the management of international transboundary rivers around the world. Closer to home, James has worked in WWF’s Prince Rupert office, encouraging community engagement in marine planning processes.
In the search for conservation solutions, it has become clear to James that regardless of the conservation challenges we face, only those communities that spend time developing and investing in local capacity will be able to deliver innovative solutions. In the future, he hopes to focus on understanding adaptive capacity and how it can be leveraged to create a world in which we live in harmony with nature.

Fairy shrimp, and sundews and spotted frogs, oh my!
