Ed Osann

Ed Osann works to improve the efficiency of our water use. From 1993 to 1996, he was director of policy and external affairs for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. He has also served on the steering committee for Water Efficient Products, a coalition of manufacturers and environmental organizations that helped launch the voluntary-labeling program known as WaterSense. He was also director of the National Wildlife Federation’s Water Resources Program. In 2010, he received the Mike Moynihan Excellence Award for innovation in water conservation from the California Urban Water Conservation Council. Osann holds a bachelor's degree from Georgetown University and a master’s from George Washington University. He is based in Washington, D.C.

Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. Our work is divided into six main program areas – Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation, Climate Change, Indigenous Rights, Transforming California, and Innovative Solutions.
