Hi, my name is Claire Conti and I am a Conservation Ambassador and want to Pay It Forward to the Next Generation of Conservation Leaders!


MY FUNDRAISING GOAL – $750

GOAL UPDATE: $700 OF $750 RAISED !

MY WLA STORY + WHY I WANT TO PAY IT FORWARD

For as long as I can remember, my life’s goal has been to be some form of a conservationist. I was shocked and excited when I was nominated by my science teacher to apply for the field school – and even more shocked and excited when I was accepted! WLA gave me the confidence to believe that my future truly is to be a scientist – and more specifically a park ranger. I’m a very proud science nerd, and I hope others reading this can be inspired to seek their dreams, too. Be proud to be a nerd and help support other future nerds!

Paying it forward is so important to me because I think that every kid should be able to reach their goals, no matter who they are. Conservation is our only future, no matter how you slice it. The more youth we have fighting, the better chance we have to win.

Thank you for helping me in Paying it Forward! ~ Claire
