Michelle L. Lute, Board Member
Michelle Lute is Co-Executive Director of Wildlife for All. A conservation scientist and advocate with fifteen years’ experience in biodiversity conservation on public and private lands around the globe, she dedicates her professional life to promoting human-wildlife coexistence through effective public engagement, equitable participatory processes, and evidence-based decision-making.
Born the daughter of a fourth-generation farmer in the Great Lakes, Michelle’s love for all things wild began at the fringes of human-dominated landscapes. From cornfield to classroom, her explorations of human interactions with non-human animals instilled an enduring belief that compassionate coexistence is not only possible but essential for our increasingly hot, hungry, and crowded world.
