After a year-long search, we are proud to announce that Meg Stark has accepted the position of GLOBIO Programs Director to begin (January 13, 2019.)
Meg Stark joins GLOBIO after the past two and a half years of working with primates in South Africa, most recently at the Vervet Monkey Foundation (VMF) as sanctuary manager. There she worked to address
the many conservation challenges facing often endangered, neglected and abused species. At VMF, she spearheaded numerous initiatives, often simultaneously, with a focus on outreach communications, fundraising and education.
Meg comes to GLOBIO with experience volunteering and working in South Africa, Sierra Leone and USA. She holds a BA from Lawrence University in Government (with a concentration in Conservation Policy) and French/Francophone Studies; as well as dual Executive Certificates in Nonprofit Leadership through University of Notre Dame.
For GLOBIO, this marks a dynamic time of growth as the organization approaches its 20th anniversary. Meg will be working with the core team in the US, and project partners in Equatorial Africa and Borneo/Sumatra to advance our mission and strategy focused on working alongside collaborators in the wild.
“Now, more than ever, primates and other critical species around the globe are in immediate need of protection and action on their behalf. I am thrilled and honored to join the team at GLOBIO to help further these conservation and educational efforts. With GLOBIO’s considerable experience, opportunities and resources, there’s no doubt that our programs will positively impact countless primate lives around the world, and I’m excited to help drive them forward. ” said Meg Stark.
Meg will meet with advisors, partners, and donors to build collaborations to advance GLOBIO programs into the future and lay the groundwork for expanding efforts around organizational development, community conservation, and enhanced visual storytelling. We look forward to applying Meg’s unique perspectives and international expertise to continue to raise awareness and engagement about GLOBIO and make a lasting impact for species, people and our planet.
