TreeHugger welcomes Mark Powell

Mark Powell thrives in the outdoors and tries to return the favor by giving something back to Mother Nature. After lots of education and a stint as a university professor, he found new life as an advocate for protecting nature and using resources sustainably.

As an itinerant conservationist, he’s worked on rivers, lakes, forests, and oceans, trying to limit impacts from dams, logging, fishing, mining and irrigation. More and more he finds that conservation is a state of mind that takes root in many strange and wonderful places.

Now with a real job, he’s a Vice President with Ocean Conservancy and he fogs the blogosphere at blogfish.
