Interview: Outgoing WCS president Steven Sanderson
Monday was the last day of work at the Wildlife Conservation Society for Steven E. Sanderson, the president of the organization since 2001. The society runs conservation efforts and wildlife research projects around the world while managing the Bronx and Central Park zoos and New York (a k a Coney Island) Aquarium. Zoo and conservation work quintupled under his tenure. His successor, who starts work in August, is Cristián Samper, the former director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History.
Here’s a recent short e-mail exchange I conducted with Sanderson as a kind of exit interview.
