About the Speakers

Rob Dietz grew up in suburban Atlanta during the 1970s and 80s, immersed in the American culture of consumerism. By the time he finished college, he knew that he’d have trouble following the rules of this culture (buy, buy, buy, work, work, work). He has continuously questioned mainstream thinking, and as a result, his career has taken some unusual turns. As a scientist he worked for the US government to support wildlife and habitat conservation. As an activist, he worked for a small non-profit organization to advance a sustainable economic agenda. He was the lead author of Enough is Enough: Building a sustainable economy in a world of Finite Resources, a book about aligning economic practices with environmental realities. He is currently a Project Manager with Farmland LP, a benefit corporation that converts conventional farmland to organic with a goal of managing farms sustainably. Rob has one daughter and lives at CoHo Ecovillage in Corvallis, Oregon where he tries to shut down the computer every once in a while and go outside.

Brendan Moyle is an economist, on a mission to save rare species from extinction. But far from simply creating graphs or crunching numbers, he has travelled the world, tracked smugglers’ routes and had his vehicle shot at- because he spends his days studying understanding the complex black market of illegal trade of wildlife products. He studied for a Bachelor of Science in biology followed by a Masters in Science, before he went on to complete his PhD in economics. He is currently a lecturer at Massey and travels to China twice a year to analyse the black market and help track down those illegally trading tiger products. He also focusses on the illegal ivory and rhino horn trade, and often challenges the established conservation perception of how to deal with illegal wildlife trade by suggesting proactive and dynamic intervention, rather than strict enforcement only.
