Drawing from her diverse experience working on issues related to environment and health from both inside and outside government, Leslie will reflect on the intersections between conservation and cumulative impacts management, and the important role of integration in understanding and addressing these complex challenges. Leslie will provide insight into emerging directions in wildlife and habitat conservation being led by WWF-Canada, the largest international conservation organization in the country.
