Dave Foreman

Dave Foreman is one of a handful of charismatic, creative leaders who have had major impacts on shaping the environmental and conservation movements of the last 30 years. Foreman began his environmental work with The Wilderness Society in the 1970s, first as Southwest Representative and then from the central DC office. In the early 80s, disillusioned with mainstream environmentalism, he cofounded Earth First!. A decade later, he joined Michael Soule in forming The Wildlands Project, with support from philanthropist Doug Tompkins. Today, Foreman is Director of The Rewilding Institute, a non-profit conservation think tank based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is dedicated to developing and promoting the ideas, strategies, and vision of continental-scale conservation.
Foreman has published five books, including The Big Outside and his most successful work, Confessions of an Eco-Warrior.
