Andrea Heydlauff serves as Panthera's Senior Vice President, where she oversees the operations of the organization, with a strong focus on communications and media programs, outreach and education, government, donor and other partner relations, as well as the creation of independent films for local and international audiences. Before coming to Panthera, Andrea served as the Tiger Program Coordinator for the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), where she coordinated the Panthera-WCS Tigers Forever program, and was a researcher and author on the WCS, World Wildlife Fund, and Save the Tiger Fund Tiger Conservation Landscape project: Setting Priorities for the Conservation and Recovery of Wild Tigers: 2005 – 2015. Born in England, Andrea earned her B.A. in British Literature and M.Sc. in Wildlife Biology from the University of Arizona (2003). Her Master’s thesis focused on mitigating conflicts among humans, cattle and elk. Her interests lie heavily in human dimensions of conservation, community engagement, communications, and education – all of which are critical in conserving the world’s wild cats.
