Conservation needs a diversity of voices, informed science, and public awareness. In this story, we’re focusing on wolverines and the diversity of people doing an array of projects to meet the end goal of understanding and protecting wolverines - doing field research, collecting data, engineering equipment, collaborating with stakeholders, and harnessing the public’s support through campaigning. Engage students in this process to understand the various perspectives in conservation and the creative ways that WCS works to protect wildlife, culminating in the creation of a social media conservation campaign!
