CAC: Information for Prospective Participants
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 2012-13.

5. CAC Web
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.
The CAC program has already reached more than one million
via our live presentations and via our web pages.
This 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!
