Banquet: Evening of February 13: Dr. Richard Beilfuss
Dr. Richard Beilfuss, President & CEO, International Crane Foundation
Cranes are among the most endangered families of birds in the world, with eleven of 15 species threatened and many populations in peril. Over the next 20 years, emerging challenges will further jeopardize cranes and the places where they live--the rapid development of China (home to eight crane species), for example, and the impact of climate change on regional water supplies and wetlands.
Yet the special characteristics of cranes, their cultural significance, high visibility, extraordinary beauty, dramatic migrations, and striking behavior, also create unique opportunities for conservation action.
Dr. Beilfuss' presentation will explore the role of cranes as both sentinels and flagships for watershed conservation in seven great river basins around the world.
With vivid images and personal stories, Dr. Beilfuss will share how ICF is working to protect and restore great wetlands and healthy watersheds around the world.
About the Speaker Dr. Richard Beilfuss serves as President & CEO of the International Crane Foundation (ICF), a non-profit conservation organization based in Wisconsin that works worldwide to conserve cranes and the ecosystems, watersheds, and flyways on which they depend. Beilfuss is a professional hydrologist and wetland ecologist, who has been directly involved in watershed restoration projects in the US (Wisconsin, Texas), Asia (China, Nepal, Vietnam), and Africa (Mozambique, Uganda, Rwanda, Zambia, Kenya, Ethiopia), and advises on many others. Rich returned to ICF in 2009, after living and working in Mozambique with his wife Katie and two kids for the Gorongosa National Park Restoration Project (2005-2008) and World Wildlife Fund (2008-2009). Prior to that, he was ICF Africa Program Director from 1992-2005. Rich is an Adjunct Professor for the UW College of Engineering, where he teaches a graduate course on environmental flows and enjoys supervising students. He has a PhD in Land Resources, MSE in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and MSc in Water Resources Management from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Richard Beilfuss Protecting the Water on Which We Depend
Rich first joined the International Crane Foundation (ICF) in 1988 as a restoration intern, conducted his graduate field research for ICF on hydrology and wetland ecology in Vietnam and Mozambique, and then developed and directed the ICF Africa Program from 1993-2005. He left ICF in 2005 and moved with his family to Mozambique, where he served four years as Director of Scientific Services for the Gorongosa Restoration Project-a $30 million project aimed at ecological restoration and poverty alleviation in and around Gorongosa National Park. Rich returned to ICF in September 2009 to serve as Vice President-Programs, and was promoted to ICF President & CEO the following March.
Rich specializes in the emerging field of "environmental flows", which describe the quantity, timing, and quality of water flows required to sustain freshwater and estuarine ecosystems and the human livelihoods and well-being that depend on these ecosystems. He has a Ph.D. in Land Resources (Wetland Ecology), a Masters Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering-Hydrology, a Masters Degree in Water Resources Management and a Bachelors degree in Natural Resource Economics, and is a Licensed Professional Hydrologist. Prior to rejoining ICF, Rich was appointed as Senior Advisor to the World Wildlife Fund and as an Affiliate of the Natural Heritage Institute, and is now continuing in this capacity through ICF to improve water management in the Zambezi River basin of southern Africa and elsewhere.
In addition to his work with ICF, Rich also is an Adjunct Professor for the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering and for the University of Eduardo Mondlane in Mozambique, where he enjoys teaching courses and supervising students. He was appointed by Governor Doyle of Wisconsin to serve on the Examining Board of Professional Geologists, Hydrologists, and Soil Scientists.
