CAC: Information for Prospective Participants

2013-2014

INTRODUCTION 

CAC is a multi-faceted program, with many branches, all reaching out to promote wildlife conservation in different ways.  Here are the activities planned for 2013-14.

1.  CAC Tanzania - Chimpanzees

In January, 2014, CAC will be traveling to Tanzania to study chimpanzees.  For more information about participating in this effort, please click HERE

2.  CAC Video Production

3.  CAC Pacific Flyways- Migratory Birds

This branch of CAC will follow the migratory flyway along the Pacific Coast during March, 2014.  Participants in this effort will later host field trips for middle-schoolers in May & June at our local Nat'l Wildlife Refuge.  You can learn more HERE.     

4.  CAC at the Buffalo Zoo

During the Summer of 2014, a CAC representative will help the Buffalo Zoo deliver conservation-focused programs.  This is a paid summer position.  Interested Canisius students should contact DrN in February.  To learn more, click here.

5.  CAC Web Productions

One of the most successful arms of the CAC program is our web site at www.conservenature.org.  This year, our plan is to provide additional games and quizzes to that web site that will further engage the public in issues related to wildlife conservation.  This work is ready to begin immediately.  If you are interested in contributing to game development and/or the web design, please stop by the ISHAR office (HSC303A).  You can learn about the many ways to get involved.  

CLOSING COMMENTS

The CAC program has already reached more than one million people via our live presentations and via our web pagesThis program combines the study of wildlife in their natural habitat with a chance to shape positive attitudes in the next generation of citizens.   It is special program for special people.  If you are one of those people -- someone who want to help make the world a better place -- I look forward to having you join the CAC team!

See you soon!
