Dave Hole is Director, Conservation Priorities Science, and has worked with Conservation International since 2008. His interests focus on biodiversity and protected areas and on defining strategies to maintain their effectiveness into an uncertain, dynamic future. More recently, he has begun exploring how we can utilize ecosystems and the services they provide to buffer people from the negative impacts of climate change. A native of the UK, Dr. Hole graduated from the University of Lancaster, before completing a Masters at Durham University and a PhD at Oxford.
