Sean Gerrity

Sean Gerrity is President of American Prairie Reserve (APR), an organization he has led since its founding in 2002. APR's bold vision is to create the largest wildlife complex ever assembled in the continental United States, a vast grassland landscape spanning 5,000 square miles in northeastern Montana. The Reserve, now more than 120,000 acres, is growing through a unique model that uses private land to leverage public land, resulting in a new national treasure that is both open to the public and privately funded. Gerrity hopes to inspire others around the globe to use similarly creative 21st-century solutions for our world's conservation challenges. Prior to joining APR, Sean co-founded Catalyst Consulting, a Santa Cruz, California-based firm specializing in organizational alignment,strategy development and implementation for the business world. Leading the American Prairie Reserve project has enabled him to apply his business skills and passion for wildlife to an effort that will leave an extraordinary, nature-based legacy for future generations. Gerrity blogs about large-scale landscape conservation on the Huffington Post and was recently named a National Geographic Fellow. [+]
