You made it, good to see you here. We have a lot for you to explore, but first one big announcement!


               Y4WC is currently organizing the

 Youth for Wildlife Conservation Forum

to take place prior to and during CITES CoP18 in Colombo, Sri Lanka (20th-28th May, 2019).
It is a mighty task and a huge opportunity for us to fulfil our mission and fully engage and empower early-career wildlife conservationists in the CITES processes. 

We aim to bridge the gap between existing and future policymakers as well as grassroots conservationists, catalysing a new generation of wildlife conservation leaders committed to effective policy and management of wildlife that translates to practical, grassroot conservation efforts on the ground.  


Want to get an idea of what it is all about? Watch the video from the inaugural Youth Forum in 2016, where Y4WC was first created!  

It all commences in... 


Y4WC exists to support early-career wildlife conservationists by empowering them to become catalysts for change: to be the future conservation leaders the world needs.
