Suzanne Little oversees Pew’s land conservation efforts in Alaska as an officer on the U.S. public lands team. Much of her work involves building relationships with Alaska Natives living in remote areas and communities, with the goal of ensuring that these local voices are represented in land use issues and the conservation of some of these rugged and pristine landscapes. She joined Pew in 2012 and is based in Anchorage.

Little has extensive experience in public policy leadership, land planning, and nonprofit management, and she represented the Kenai Peninsula in the Alaska state Senate for one term.  She was voted the most effective new legislator and led the effort to rewrite Alaska’s Open Meetings Act, championing public involvement and local control for resource development.

Little holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental planning and landscape architecture from the University of California, Davis.
