CAC: Information for Prospective Participants

2014-2015

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 2014-15.

1.  CAC Hawaii - Island Biogeography

In December, 2014, CAC will travel to the island of Maui to study the three ecosystems that are predominant there.  For more information about participating in this effort, please click HERE

2.  CAC Video Production

In 2015, the CAC program will develop educational video programs focused on the wonders of the world's wildlife.  To learn more, click HERE.

3.  CAC Tropical Connections- Migratory Birds

This branch of CAC will study the wonders of birds, and the way that bird migration connects our local wildlfie to that in the tropics.  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 and Marineland of Canada

During the Summer of 2015, a CAC representative will deliver conservation-focused programs at the Buffalo Zoo and at Marineland of Canada.  This is a paid summer position.  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, we will develop additional games and content to that web site in order to further engage the public in issues related to wildlife conservation.  If you are interested in contributing to effort, please stop by to see DrN in the ISHAR office (HSC203).  You can learn about the many ways to get involved.  

CLOSING COMMENTS

The CAC program has already reached more than two 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 think you might be 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!
