Environment & Conservation

Environment & Conservation

Koya has a long track record of partnering with environmental and conservation organizations, from national and global advocates working to address climate change to local conservation organizations. We have recruited national and global leaders in environmental and conservation science and policy, advocacy, natural resource and wildlife protection, climate and energy, and others.

We understand the vital role these organizations play under ever increasing pressures and demands, including the need to build more diverse teams and bases of support, effect meaningful policy change, and protect rapidly disappearing lands and resources.

Our work in environment and conservation includes CEO/President/Executive Director searches and senior leadership in program, administration, research, policy, fundraising, and more.
