Conservation Science: The Next Generation

WCS Canada


The impact of WCS Canada’s W. Garfield Weston Fellowship Program, 2009-2019.

Abstract

WCS Canada’s W. Garfield Weston Fellowship program has helped a new generation of scientists tackle some of the most important issues facing our planet. From climate change and biodiversity loss to the impacts of resource development, these bright young graduate students are bringing fresh perspectives to the threats facing our natural world.

Since 2009, our Fellowship program has supported 86 research projects looking at issues such as changing migration and seasonal adjustment patterns, road impacts, carbon storage, and new approaches to resource planning as they have sought to expand our knowledge of how to help wildlife.
