Conservation Workshops and Conferences

Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leaders

Each year, future wildlife conservation leaders come together for the Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leaders (EWCL) conference at White Oak.  This two-year training program helps jump-start early career conservation professionals through a combination of skills training, networking opportunities with peers and established practitioners and the completion of a global wildlife conservation initiative. EWCL training addresses a long-standing need for capable leaders in the conservation field who are equipped with a full arsenal of skills to launch well-rounded and successful conservation campaigns and build successful leadership careers in the wildlife conservation profession.
