Jamie Robertson is a Conservation Geographer with two decades of spatial analysis and mapping experience at all scales of conservation, from global freshwater and marine habitat assessments to site-level optimization for wetland restoration. Following a Master’s degree in Geography from Appalachian State University in his home-state of North Carolina, Jamie was a spatial analyst for the National Zoo’s Conservation and Research Center mapping Asian large fauna habitats and instructing GIS and remote-sensing workshops in the US and China. He left the Zoo in 2005 to join The Nature Conservancy’s central science team, co-authoring The Atlas of Global Conservation and turning his career toward applied local-level planning in Colorado and now Washington.

In recent years, much of Jamie’s attention has been on Natural Climate Solutions in Washington, including enabling resiliency of nature and people under climate change while simultaneously maximizing nature-based carbon sequestration to mitigate that change.
