Update on EWCL Class Projects

The 2013-2014 Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leaders class is actively working on their group conservation projects. The four species being helped by this class are:

 

Snow Leopard

The Snow Leopard Group is partnering with Snow Leopard Conservation Foundation and 2012 EWCL graduate Nadia Mijidorj to educate youth in Mongolia whose daily life choices directly impact the future of snow leopards and to educate targeted North American audiences who can influence long-term conservation of the species.

 

Indian Turtles

The Freshwater Turtles of India Group is identifying alternative types of fishing nets that will reduce turtle bycatch but are equally effective at capturing fish. They will also work to procure these nets for distribution on the ground in India at stakeholder workshops about protecting the local environment.

 

Giant Armadillo

The Giant Armadillo Group is conducting a public education campaign in Brazil focused on leveraging the armadillo mascot of the upcoming World Cup in Brazil to help secure conservation measures for the species. The campaign includes outreach in Brazilian and North American zoos in order to bring attention to the plight of this rare and little-known species.

 

African Painted Dogs

The African Painted Dog Group is working to protect a key population of this critically endangered species in Zimbabwe by helping to redesign and fund reflective, anti-snare collars that will reduce losses from poaching and car collisions and by increasing global awareness of the painted dog’s plight through an educational campaign.
