Sarah Hines

Biological Scientist
U.S. Forest Service
MBA/MS Program 2007

Sarah's primary focus is related to Corporate Social Responsibility, and the ways in which non-profits, NGOs, and corporations can work synergistically to reduce the ecological footprint of business practices while simultaneously improving the quality of the social environments in which they operate. Sarah has spent time working on issues of human-wildlife conflict in both Kenya and Zambia; in Kenya, she collaborated with local academics and community members, researching and developing an integrated land and water-use plan combining sustainable agricultural and pastoral practices with the creation of protected areas for wild game. In Zambia, Sarah worked with farmers to mitigate human-elephant conflict and improve their economic well-being by using chili peppers as a natural wildlife deterrent and sustainable cash crop. Sarah has also volunteered with the US Fish & Wildlife Service in her home state of Rhode Island, and was selected as a Doris Duke Conservation Fellow in 2005. Sarah graduated with honors from Harvard University in 2002, and holds a B.A. in Biological Anthropology.
