Conservation needs professionals who have the skills necessary to solve really complex issues. WCS supports many programs that help build conservation leadership, from summer camp all the way through to advanced degree scholarships. The Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) offers funding, training, and mentoring to leading early- and mid-career conservationists from developing countries through the support of its donors. The Graduate Scholarship Program provides access to advanced degree scholarships to exceptional conservationists. Focusing on building your students' conservation identities and leadership skills, this Field Sight story will fit into your curriculum with standards aligned worksheets.
