Jim Levitt, Director of the Program on Conservation Innovation at the Harvard Forest was recently selected as one of five Donaldson Fellows at Yale University's School of Management, where he received his masters degree in 1980. The Donaldson Fellowship Program recognizes accomplished graduates and brings them to Yale to impart their work and life experiences on current students and faculty through lectures, seminars and workshops.

Jim was recognized for his work in conservation finance at Harvard University, which seeks "to bring together people across the public, private, nonprofit, and academic/research sectors to find innovative ways to preserve land and wildlife habitat." Jim, who is on the boards of the Quebec-Labrador Foundation and Massachusetts Audubon Society, will be organizing a conference of conservation finance innovators in Chile in January 2009 to discuss the most promising tools and techniques in the field and to advance conservation activities across the Americas.
