Description

David Macdonald, PhD
Director of WildCRU, Zoology, University of Oxford
Recanati Kaplan Centre
Tubney, Oxfordshire,  United Kingdom

"Professor David Macdonald is the Director and founder (1986) of the world renowned Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) at the University of Oxford, the world’s first university-based institute focusing on wildlife conservation research, now one of the largest, most productive and influential conservation research and training institutes globally. David is a true conservation leader in every sense, and has had impacts at every level from rural African communities to top international policy. One of David’s well-known remarks is “It’s difficult enough to be interesting, but its much harder to be useful!”

"Of course people who know little of conservation imagine it to be a cosy and cuddly subject, but that is not the understanding of anybody who appreciates that conservation is actually about how people in the 21st Century (8 billion or so of them, from peasants to presidents) wish humanity to live alongside wildlife and the environment, and hence is about deep choices that affect every single citizen – this is not easy stuff!” David Macdonald
