Conrad Vispo received a Ph.D. in wildlife ecology, specializing in nutritional ecology, at the University of Wisconsin. He studied the ecology and management of a tropical freshwater fishery with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Venezuela’s Fundacion La Salle for several years before co-founding Hawthorne Valley’s Farmscape Ecology Program. With that program he has been exploring the role of agriculture in providing habitat for native species and the importance of native (or at least wild) species in providing ecological services to farms.
