Andres has a passion for clean water, since it is a basic necessity for all living things. These social environmental issues need to come from people from all different backgrounds, cultures, and studies. The conservation issues should be given platforms within journalism and the media better inform the public and bring about change.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
