Christine Proctor

Conservation Director

Christine Proctor brings over two decades of experience in conservation and geospatial research to her role as Audubon Mid-Atlantic’s Director of Conservation. Christine works with the Forest, Coastal, and Baltimore programs to improve natural resource connectivity, climate resiliency, and bird habitat across the landscape. In partnership with each program, she coordinates the monitoring and evaluation of program activities to measure impact on birds and communities. Prior to joining Audubon, Christine was an Assistant Professor of Ecology at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology where she successfully developed a new major - Environmental Science & Sustainability. This innovative program provides students with real-world experience through partnerships with governments and nonprofit organizations. While there, she worked with several government agencies and conservation non-profits to develop novel uses of technology for monitoring cryptic species and investigated the legacy impact of red lining on urban heat index values in Harrisburg, PA. Previously, Christine worked as the Game Lands Management Tool Coordinator for the Pennsylvania Game Commission where she coordinated the development of cross-agency wildlife management plans to increase the efficiency of habitat improvements on state game lands. With her unique blend of technical knowledge, project management skills, and ability to connect diverse partners, she works towards collaborative solutions that lead to lasting landscape-scale conservation action.
