Brian Seasholes is the director of Reason Foundation’s endangered species project and a senior policy fellow with Federalism In Action.

His work deals with wildlife and land-use issues, especially the Endangered Species Act, property rights, wildlife conservation, including private approaches to conservation in the U.S. and around the world and efforts to create property rights to wildlife, the effects of utility-scale wind and solar energy generation on wildlife, the effects of taxation on conservation and wildlife, impacts of punitive, public approaches to conservation on wildlife and people, the environmental benefits of incentive-based approaches to conservation, and the intersection between wildlife conservation and energy development. His writings have appeared in Forbes, National Review Online, Christian Science Monitor, Houston Chronicle, Orange County Register, The Daily Caller and The Washington Times.

Brian received his bachelor’s degree from Wesleyan University and his master’s degree in geography from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where his research and thesis was on efforts in Zimbabwe to create property rights to wildlife, with a particular focus on a group of ranchers who formed a co-management entity, called a conservancy, for wildlife that lived on their properties.
