Carly Vynne Baker

Carly Vynne, PhD, is principal consultant at Osprey Insights and a Strategic Partner at RESOLVE. Her efforts have focused on working with non-profits, Tribes, corporations, private foundations, and agencies to conduct biodiversity assessments and to design, fund, and implement conservation programs. She has overseen conservation planning processes in Asia, Africa, and South America, and recently established several public-private partnerships to create impactful conservation programs across the western United States and arctic Alaska. Her PhD research focused on how the maned wolf and other wide-ranging mammals used the landscape matrix in and around a protected area in the Brazilian Cerrado.  At present, she is actively promoting Nature Needs Half, managing the Quick Response Biodiversity Fund, and helping to develop other creative solutions for how we can leave more room for nature in a rapidly changing world.
