Wildlife conservation takes more than field work and data collection. The help of the public is crucial for getting conservation solutions off the ground. Join us at the Central Park Zoo to learn ways to engage your students in civic advocacy and build the next generation of conservationists. In this workshop, you will explore conservation stories that the Wildlife Conservation Society works on to transform your students into stewards. Participants will engage in activities modeling real world processes that advocate for responsible management of natural resources.
