My name is Isabella Chung, and I am from Honolulu, Hawai’i. Having grown up surrounded by nature, I am really passionate about making the environment accessible to everyone, and especially communities of color. Since both of my parents are immigrants, I care a lot about preserving cultural traditions and connections with land. I also really want to learn more about different ways to support food sovereignty, particularly in urban areas. I believe helping children and young adults to engage with nature is really important to creating a more sustainable future. Above all, I am committed to the decolonization of science and the environment, and hope to make these spaces more inclusive!

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.
