Profile: Dr John Jackson

Forestry Journal:


John has a lifetime's experience in ground-breaking leadership roles in forestry, environmental matters, wildlife conservation, natural resources research and management, and training in both Argentina and the United Kingdom. As an Anglo-Argentine, he is fluent in both English and Spanish. He has worked in pivotal posts with the IUCN/WWF International, Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria, Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina, the Open University and the Royal Forestry Society. A prolific author, he has published extensively, specialising lately in knowledge-transfer material for outreaching services, websites and e-bulletins. He has a knack for bridging the gap between the boffin and the layperson, explaining seemingly complex science in plain English without befuddling nor dumbing down the information.
