Do you ever wonder about the legacy of our natural resources? Will the next generation step up?
We hope that when understand and learn about the mission of Wildlife Leadership Academy , you will be reminded that YES – our conservation future is in good hands! We hope that you will be inspired by these young conservation leaders who are making a difference in their backyards and beyond.
The backbone of our vision for the Wildlife Leadership Academy is to support our alumni from high school to college to career. We want to ensure that our young conservation leaders feel engaged and supported as they grow from inquisitive teens to professional adults. Whether it is offering college visit days, taking them to professional meetings, or giving them career advice via our Academy Alumni Network, we aim to connect them with their peers and other professionals so they can find success.
All of this begins with planting the seeds of confidence and inspiration in our students at their first Academy field school. A PA Bucktails Class of 2017 Alumn, Kaitlyn, shares the spark that can be created…
“Wildlife Leadership Academy showed me that you don’t have to have a degree to be a genuine conservationist. I can be doing my part even if I am only at the age of sixteen. I can be teaching and spreading information about the things that I adore. Being young doesn’t give me a disadvantage, but rather gives me opportunities. Wildlife Leadership Academy was the opportunity that I needed.”
Your support ensures that we can continue to plant the seeds of opportunity and serve these amazing young leaders as they grow. We are so grateful to have you on this journey.
