Peter Seligmann

Co-founder and CEO, Conservation International

We’ve lost track of the relationship that we have with nature and ecosystem services because we don’t think about our food coming from a forest or a farm; it comes from the supermarket. There’s a real disconnect now.

As Chairman and CEO of Conservation International, Peter Seligmann has been an influential and inspiring voice in conservation for nearly 40 years. He works in partnership with governments, communities, and businesses to find solutions to ensure the sustainability of our natural resources. Under Seligmann’s leadership, Conservation International has become a cutting edge leader in valuing and sustainably caring for nature for the well-being of people. 

Seligmann serves on the advisory council for the Jackson Hole Land Trust and is a Director at Arnhold and S. Bleichroeder Holdings, Inc. He holds a master of science in forestry and environmental Science from Yale University and a bachelor of science in wildlife ecology from Rutgers University.
