Strategic Advisor and Empower Management Board Member
Dr. Evan Blumer has worked for more than 25 years to integrate wildlife, habitat and energy conservation strategies with new, sustainable development models. Trained as a Wildlife Veterinarian and Conservation Biologist, Evan spent much of his career building the Wilds, one of the largest and most innovative Conservation, Science and Education Centers in the world.
In addition to his work with wildlife and habitat conservation, Evan’s efforts at the Wilds also resulted in the development of new models for the integration of advanced energy and land-use strategies, including (with David Wilhelm) the original ideas behind the Turning Point Solar project. Evan now works on numerous international sustainable development projects, including a broad array of advanced and transitional energy strategies. Evan’s academic training includes Bucknell University (B.S.), State University of N.Y. at Stony Brook (M.S.), and the University of Pennsylvania (V.M.D. and Ph.D. program).
