George Jackman
George is a retired NYPD police lieutenant turned aquatic ecologist. George is an experienced, environmental activist and adjunct professor at Queens College, and holds a PhD in ecology, evolution and behavior from the CUNY Graduate Center in conjunction with SUNY ESF. George has extensive experience and academic research working with migratory fishes. He is currently working on dam removals in the Hudson Valley, especially ones that are considered priority barriers to migratory fish. Dam removals are needed to restore and reconnect critical habitat in which migratory fishes need to survive, reproduce, or complete a necessary part of their life cycle. George conducts planning, outreach, fundraising, communications, and advocacy to promote fish passage, and mitigate the damaging effects of barriers.
