Dr. Eric Dinerstein is the Director of the Biodiversity and Wildlife Solutions Program at RESOLVE. He focuses on applying new technologies to better protect and monitor endangered wildlife. For much of the past 25 years he was Chief Scientist at the World Wildlife Fund.
He came up with the idea of a Global Tiger Summit in 2010 to double the world's tiger population by 2022. More recently, he's been developing cost-effective night-vision goggles for wildlife rangers and smart camera anti-poaching devices. His most recent effort is to promote the concept popularized by Dr. E.O. Wilson of Nature Needs Half—setting aside half of the Earth’s terrestrial ecoregions to save a living planet and avoid the extinction and climate crises.
