My Ho-Chunk name is JāJā̜p here ga, “He who is Lightning” and I want to learn about conservation efforts in Washington in order to promote conservation on my reservation in Winnebago, Nebraska. I want to apply traditional Native American practices and beliefs with modern technology to reduce our carbon footprint and protect Mother Earth.

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.
