Jonathan Baillie Executive Vice President and Chief Scientist of the National Geographic Society
Jonathan Baillie is the executive vice president and chief scientist of the National Geographic Society. Overseeing grants, impact initiatives, National Geographic labs, explorer programs and the international team, Baillie is at the forefront in shaping the focus on key projects that emphasize science, technology and storytelling to help protect species at risk, better understand human history and culture, and conserve some of our planet’s last wild places. Baillie’s extensive fieldwork includes understanding the persistence and vulnerability of island-endemic birds in the Gulf of Guinea, conducting behavioral studies of desert baboons in Namibia, researching and monitoring western lowland gorillas in Gabon, and discovering evidence of EDGE species (Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered) such as the long-beaked echidna in the Cyclops Mountains in Indonesia.
