Chad Wilsey

Chad is the Director of Conservation Science for the National Audubon Society. Before he became a Director, Chad was a Spatial Ecologist and Research Manager of the Climate Initiative for the National Audubon Society. With a PhD in Landscape Ecology, and Master of Science in Conservation Biology and Sustainable Development, Chad engages in a wide variety of spatial and non-spatial analyses across the Audubon network. His team provides science support for major conservation initiatives, especially the original science supporting the Climate Initiative. Chad uses spatial data and analysis tools, such as remote sensing and computer modeling, to address the potential impacts of development and climate-change on bird and wildlife populations. He has also studied the dependence of the endangered Black-Capped Vireo on sustained cowbird management and characterized bird communities in shaded cacao and banana agroforests in Costa Rica. Chad has extensive field experience in completing wildlife surveys for energy development projects in Wyoming, bird banding in New Mexico, and monitoring of nesting macaws in Peru.
