Leo Bottrill is a Senior Program Officer for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Macroeconomics Program Office based in Washington DC. He is the project leader for Moabi – a collaborative mapping system that crowdsources data on infrastructure and extractive activities, which may impact critical ecosystems. The first Moabi website (rdc.moabi.org) launched in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in March 2011. The site will provide a participatory and transparent platform for civil society groups to monitor site-based forest carbon projects. Prior to joining WWF, Leo spent several years working in Vietnam and Indonesia on conservation projects in both marine and terrestrial protected areas. He holds a Masters in Geography from the University of St. Andrews and a Masters of Science in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London.
