Gilly Llewellyn

Deputy Practice Leader and Innovation Lead for WWF International

I’m the Deputy Practice Leader and Innovation Lead for WWF International. I’ve lived and worked on conservation issues in the Americas, Southeast Asia and Australia. I have a Masters and a Phd in Tropical Ecology, specialising in the large-scale spatial and temporal patterns of reef communities.

If you asked me what I was proud of, I’d have to say our partnerships with business and industry and our willingness to embrace innovative approaches. Both are so essential to success, especially now that we’re entering such a period of rapid environmental change, a period that’s unparalleled in any of our lifetimes.
