The future looks brighter for wildlife thanks to the Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leaders (EWCL) program
, which trains the next generation of conservation leaders. Each year WCN sponsors two participants from its international network to participate in EWCL. This April, two young men from Kenya, Peter Lalampaa of Grevy’s Zebra Trust and Jerenimo Lepirei of Save the Elephants, will travel to the U.S. to seize this opportunity. Following a highly competitive application process, EWCL brings together twenty new, emerging leaders in the wildlife conservation field for capacity-building and intense training. By nurturing future leaders, exchanging ideas, and generating tangible conservation products as part of a group campaign exercise, EWCL significantly benefits wildlife conservation around the world.
