About Wildlife Conservation Society Canada:
Established in 2004, Wildlife Conservation Society Canada is an independent affiliate of Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), a global organization founded in 1895 with operations in more than 62 countries. WCS hopes for a world where wildlife thrives in healthy lands and seas, valued by societies that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of life on Earth. Management of WCS Canada is provided by Dr. Justina Ray, who has led the Canadian operations since inception.
WCS saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, conservation action, education, and inspiring people to value nature. WCS Canada contributes mainly through field research on wildlife, sharing its results through publications, and providing advice on conservation policies and planning for protected areas. Wildlife Conservation Society Canada also provides fellowships to graduate students to support field research at 2 long-term conservation sites: the boreal region of northern Ontario and the northern boreal mountains of Yukon and British Columbia.
