Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leaders Training

Melanie Colón

Recommended Posts

The EWCL training program helps jump-start early career conservation professionals through a combination of skills training, networking opportunities and the completion of a wildlife conservation initiative that provides real benefits to imperiled species. EWCL training addresses a long-standing need for capable leaders in the international 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.


EWCL is currently accepting applications for the 2015-2016 class.


Successful applicants will have worked in the conservation field for at least three years and plan to work at least 15 more years, can attend a week-long training each spring in 2015 and 2016, will commit to devoting approximately eight hours per month to a EWCL conservation project, and can demonstrate how they might benefit from all key aspects of the course.


Successful candidates are selected based on their enthusiasm, skills and vision. We seek diverse candidates from non-profit organizations, foundations, federal and state governments and the private sector. Applicants should be interested in all three components of the course: networking and career mentoring opportunities, training in leadership and wildlife conservation campaign skills, and implementing a wildlife conservation project in a team setting. Participants will be expected to devote time throughout the two-year period to designing and implementing a group wildlife conservation project.


All costs for the program are covered for selected US-based participants, who will be invited to attend a one-week training course each spring and a final, two-day training at the end of the program.


International applicants must show an ability to cover the cost of two flights to the United States, and must be fluent in English.
