Youth For Wildlife

Exposed Wildlife Conservancy’s Youth for Wildlife program mobilizes and empowers the next generation of wildlife advocates to make long-lasting changes in how wolves, bears, cougars, and other fur-bearing animals are managed and treated in Canada.  This program encourages youth to become stewards of their environment and promotes ethical behaviours and a sense of responsibility toward wildlife. This can lead to long-term changes in attitudes and behaviours regarding wildlife conservation and, ultimately, how apex predators are managed in Canada.

Supporting wildlife and making impactful and meaningful changes for them can seem impossible at times. With inhumane, unethical, and non-scientifically-backed wildlife management tactics, such as wolf culling, trophy hunting, wildlife killing contests, commercial trapping, and cougar hound hunting being supported and funded by our provincial and federal governments, it is hard to keep hope that real change will occur within our lifetime. However, we want you to know that there is still hope and that you can make a direct difference for fur-bearing animals today. 

Project Background

We’re only able to teach Canada’s youth the importance of wildlife conservation with your support. By helping provide youth with the resources, opportunities, education, support, and information they need to engage in conservation activities, you will be a part of the solution to developing ethical, science-backed, and humane wildlife management and conservation strategies within Canada. Donations made towards the Youth for Wildlife program will be used to:

  • Reduce barriers for youth to participate in conservation initiatives. 
  • Develop wildlife-focused curriculums that teachers can use in classrooms.
  • Offer in-person and virtual educational workshops that teach youth about wildlife, their critical environmental roles, and how to coexist with them.
  • Create a citizen science program which enables youth to get involved with in-the-field conservation activities. 

How You Can Help

Your generosity will make it possible for Canada’s youth to learn about wildlife, participate in critical conservation efforts, and become the next generation empowered to give wildlife a voice. With your support, we are one step closer to changing how bears, wolves, and cougars are managed in Canada. There are three ways you can help mobilize the next generation of changemakers to make a positive and lasting impact on Canada’s wildlife.
