Youth for Wildlife Conservation
Run by Youth, For Youth, Promoting Youth


As official partners of the UN for World Wildlife Day (March 3rd) this year,  Y4WC will be running a campaign to celebrate the positive conservation actions of youth and the importance of ‘Listening to young voices’. 

A core belief of Y4WC is that the world should ‘Listen to young voices’ not simply because youth are underrepresented in conservation and international conventions, but because we are already making positive impacts in our communities and may have new solutions and perspectives on conservation matters.

The Youth for Wildlife Conservation network was catalyzed by the Youth forum for People and Wildlife, convened by the International Fund for Animal Welfare in September 2016 in advance of CITES CoP 17.
