Dr. Don Melnick, Thomas Hunt Morgan Professor of Conservation Biology, was elected to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in March 2019.

Professor Melnick, who has advised heads-of-state, ministers of foreign affairs, and minsters of environment, as well as the UN, hopes to use his CFR membership to further efforts to bring environmental science into national and international policy discussions.
