Daniel Kachelriess, M.Sc.

Daniel joined Sea Shepard Legal as Senior Policy Specialist in April 2020, bringing with him extensive experience in building capacity and supporting decision making in ocean conservation and fisheries at the international level. Daniel previously served as Marine Species Officer of the Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and led on many technical aspects of the implementation of the Convention for marine species. In this and previous roles, he also contributed to international policy processes at the United Nations headquarters in New York, in particular in the Legal Committee of the General Assembly and negotiations on Sustainable Development Goal 14, as well as the work of other UN bodies. Based on these experiences, Daniel is excited to continue supporting governments in transforming sound science into well-crafted policies, regulations, and laws to advance ocean conservation in his new role.
