The National Wildlife Federation’s EcoLeaders program is a cornerstone of our mission to protect wildlife for our children’s future. Working with students, staff and faculty at nearly all of the 4,100 colleges and universities across the U.S., the National Wildlife Federation’s EcoLeaders team fosters appreciation and protection of wildlife in ways that advance student leadership, restore habitat and conserve natural resources on and beyond the campus, and prepare the next generation of wildlife and conservation professionals. Working with the nation’s leading land grant and natural resource schools, minority-serving institutions and professional societies, the National Wildlife Federation’s EcoLeaders program is a pioneer in helping college and university leaders define the state of the art in what it means to be sustainable and wildlife-friendly.
