Amy W. Ando

Dr. Ando helps conservation agencies and groups maximize the benefits people glean from investments to protect nature. She helps conservation agents decide where and how long conservation contracts should be, and how we can reduce the risk of future conservation failure. She quantifies the benefits people gain from the environment and studies equity issues in how those benefits are distributed.
