Zach is a biologist and the fire manager for The Nature Conservancy in Florida. He has spent 23 years collaborating with a wide variety of partners in order to meet the challenge of getting enough fire on the ground in order to maintain Florida’s unique fire-dependent habitats. His early love of nature came from a childhood of exploring the woods and looking for ants, which he still studies today. He lives in Orlando, Florida with his family.
