EWCL Class 5 Has Been Selected!

We are pleased to announce the 2013-2014 Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leaders Class. We had an incredibly competitive selection process this year, with nearly 100 qualified candidates for 22 slots, so we anticipate great things from the class that was selected. 

Thanks to everyone who recommended applicants and encouraged colleagues to apply. We’re sorry if someone you suggested was not selected - it was the most competitive and difficult selection process yet.  However, we ended up with a very diverse and exciting group.  And due to the generosity of Wildlife Conservation Network and the World Wildlife Fund Environment for Nature program, we were able to offer spots in the class to two conservationists from Kenya, one from Thailand, and one from Bolivia.

Our newest partner, the Houston Zoo, has offered to host the first training for this class, which will be from April 1st through 5th, 2013.  Other returning partners include US Fish & Wildlife Services Division of International Conservation and National Wildlife Refuges, White Oak, Defenders of Wildlife, Wildlife Conservation Society and International Fund for Animal Welfare.  Additionally, we have received seed money from Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund for this group’s Class Projects.

We are also excited to announce that we will be getting some much needed help and new ideas for this class from Dave Mizejewski and Amielle DeWan, EWCL Alumni and Board Members who will be the Training Directors for this EWCL class.
