Luke Warwick joined The Pew Charitable Trusts’ in 2011, bringing with him 10 years of government and NGO marine conservation policy expertise to the global shark conservation campaign.
The Global Shark Conservation Campaign works with government leaders, scientists, fisheries experts, diplomats, and even survivors of shark attacks to highlight the plight of sharks from overfishing and to protect them through habitat protection, catch and trade regulation, and demand reduction.
Warwick was a key member of the Pew team that achieved the groundbreaking listing of commercially exploited sharks at CITES in March 2013. Prior to joining Pew, Warwick led the UK Government’s work on marine species protection, using scientific and technical evidence to develop and implement the UK’s domestic and international policy to protect vulnerable marine species, focusing in particular on sharks, cetaceans and seabirds. He has worked on projects in Europe, Asia, Oceania and the Americas, and has been based in the international policy hubs of London, Brussels and Washington, D.C.
Warwick studied Oceanography and Marine Biology at the United Kingdom’s National Oceanographic Centre. He is an avid scuba diver and enjoys spending time with his wife and son at home in Washington, DC.
