Center for Large Landscape Conservation
Melly Reuling, a senior conservation advisor at the Center for Large Landscape Conservation (CLLC) has worked on a wide variety of conservation and natural resource projects in both East Africa and the North America. Her work in large landscapes started in Tanzania and Kenya where she conducted research on elephant corridors and migration routes around and between Kenya and Tanzania. Her research led to the initiation of community conservation projects adjacent to national parks to find solutions to human-wildlife conflict. After living in East Africa for more than 20 years she relocated to Bozeman, Montana with her family. In Montana she has worked on white bark pine and climate change issues, as well as wildlife corridor and migration projects. Melly comes from a ranching and farming family and combines an understanding of the landscape and the people who rely on it with a love of wildlife and wild places. At CLLC she works protecting the natural values of large landscapes by addressing threats such as climate change and habitat fragmentation.
