Whomever it may be, I hope she/he likes rattlesnakes.

Hmm.... I made a substantial contribution to Al Gore's presidential campaign back when. If TNC is slick and smart enough to snag him, they will have hired a gold mine. I would completely trust any organization Al was in charge of.



Ah, the outside inside scoop? Pure speculation, then. I do not believe McCormick has an heir apparent, as he apparently was for Sawhill.

I predict a search that looks at leaders of large, international conservation non-profits (WWF, CI). Carter Roberts at WWF came from TNC, but I think is happy where he is. I'd bet on someone of stature with global conservation and political connections. Think Al Gore. Or maybe someone less polarizing and more to the taste of conservative conservationists. Theodore Roosevelt IV?

Who does Greenman Tim like for McCormick's replacement?

As a member of the Nature Conservancy, I had no idea of the controversies surrounding Steve McCormick and his organization. I do believe I'll keep a close eye on who they hire, and even perhaps re-direct my philanthropy to other worthy organizations in the next 12 months or so. Great article.
