Idris Tang

Case Western Reserve University

  • Anthropology
  • Biology

Idris is a biology major/anthropology minor at Case Western Reserve University and is interested in pursuing a career in conservation biology. Their interests in the field range from working with indigenous communities to doing research at the intersection of conservation and genetics. More specifically, they’re interested in helping indigenous communities preserve their knowledge and apply it to the field of conservation. Alternatively, they would like to use genetic engineering to bolster genetic diversity within the populations of endangered species. Idris also hopes to examine what it means to foster mutually beneficial relationships between humans, animals, and the environment.

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.
