Areas of Expertise: Climate change adaptation, climate change mitigation, landscape ecology, green infrastructure
Ted Weber joined Defenders of Wildlife in January 2020, bringing over 20 years of experience as an ecologist and natural resource planner, including identifying opportunities to sequester carbon and address threats like flooding and sea level rise. He spent nearly 15 years with The Conservation Fund, where he performed habitat modeling; landscape, watershed and field-based ecological assessments; ecosystem services valuations; and identifying and prioritizing areas for conservation and restoration. Before that, he worked for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, where among other projects, he designed one of the nation's first "green infrastructure" networks of key habitats and connecting corridors.
Ted holds a B.S. in Physics and an MS in Systems Ecology and Wetland Ecology from University of Florida.
