Daniel Lavelle

Survival International
US Director
Daniel Lavelle is the US Director for Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples. Survival International works in partnership with Indigenous and tribal peoples worldwide to help them defend their lives, protect their lands and determine their own futures.

Daniel has a PhD in Environmental Science, Policy and Management from the University of California, Berkeley where he studied the social and environmental impacts of extractive industries and industrial agriculture development on rural and Indigenous communities, and on the environments on which they depend. Daniel has extensive experience in Latin America where he has worked with rural communities fighting for land rights.

For the last 50 years, Survival’s global campaigns have worked to stop loggers, miners, and oil companies from destroying tribal lands, lives and livelihoods across the globe. We lobby governments to recognize Indigenous land rights. We document and expose atrocities committed against tribal people and take direct action to stop them. We give tribal and Indigenous peoples a platform to speak to the world.
