Our educators have B.S., M.Sc., or Ph.D. degrees in wildlife biology or a related field making them knowledgeable about the fundamentals of scientific fields. In addition, they are well-versed in contemporary issues related to wildlife biology, wildlife and range management, and natural resource conservation. Often they are students in the Welder Wildlife Foundation graduate fellowship program. We love what we do, and we do it with passion. For more information on our education programs please contact one of our educators. We look forward to working with you.
