About Dillon Hanson-Ahumada
Hello there! My name is Dillon Hanson-Ahumada and I am a conservation advocate and lover of all things wild. I recently graduated with a degree in conservation biology and environmental studies and currently work for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). At NRDC I work to protect our oceans by focusing on issues including protecting marine mammals, combatting illegal fishing, conserving sharks, helping to advance strategies to fight ocean plastic pollution, and serving as a liaison to community and grassroots groups fighting offshore oil and gas production. Prior to joining NRDC, HI worked on sustainability issues for the public-school system in Lincoln, NE, and was a part of the climate and energy team within the Wilderness Society. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, skiing, wildlife photography, and meeting new people. I am currently based in San Francisco, CA.
