James Snider has provided spatial analysis and conservation planning expertise to the WWF-Canada team since 2007. Building on his background in landscape ecology, conservation biology and environmental impact assessment and statistics, James provides landscape analysis and mapping support for WWF’s freshwater, Arctic and climate programs. His work at WWF-Canada has included identifying high conservation forest values as part of the Forest Stewardship Council certification process for responsibly managed forests; mapping the cumulative footprint of mineral development on barrenground caribou calving areas in northern Canada; and, most recently, developing an analysis of river health in Canada. James commutes to work year-round by bicycle and is often found biking the forested trails of the Niagara Escarpment.
