Steven Price

Senior Conservation Science Director


Price leads the Toronto-based thematic team of conservation experts for
WWF-Canada, reporting to the Chief Conservation Officer, Arlin Hackman.
Forests, freshwater, endangered species, marine/seafood, mining and
conservation operations comprise the team’s current range of expertise. Where
needed, Steven’s team will provide support to the regional offices across Canada which
focus on ‘ecoregional’ conservation. Gaining lessons and leverage from the
ecoregion experiences, the team will also pursue national policy reform and
partnerships that advance WWF’s mission throughout Canada and around the world.


Steven has worked at WWF-Canada for 30 years, previously on Canadian forest and
FSC projects, Latin American conservation, and endangered species protection.
He has earned a zoology B.Sc. and a botany M.Sc., both from the University of Toronto. Outside of work, he enjoys
cottage life, birds, and canoeing, along with his wife and two grown
children.  In meetings, he prefers to sit facing the window, in case an
endangered peregrine falcon flies by.
