James Snider has provided spatial analysis and conservation planning expertise to the WWF-Canada team since 2007. Building on his background in landscape ecology, conservation biology, and environmental impact assessment and statistics, he provides landscape analysis and mapping support for WWF’s freshwater, arctic and climate programs.

His work at WWF-Canada has included identifying high conservation forest values as part of the Forest Stewardship Council certification process for responsibly managed forests; mapping the cumulative footprint of mineral development on barrenground caribou calving areas in northern Canada; developing a new approach to conservation planning in the rapidly changing Arctic environment as part of the “Rapid Assessment of Circumarctic Ecosystem Resilience” project with WWF’s Global Arctic Programme; and, most recently, developing an analysis of river health in Canada.

James continues to apply his skills in geographic information systems, remote sensing, statistics, and global climate modelling to help with WWF-Canada’s projects in ecosystem service valuation, climate change adaptation and renewable energy.
