  • Political Science

Elevating the field of conservation is a two-prong approach, we cannot rely solely on the science itself to preserve life but rather advancement lies in the integration of different disciplines. By using knowledge on the intersection between conservation, migration, human geography, and public policy, Quincy aspires to illuminate the environmental and social injustices of our time. Ultimately, he hopes to implement environmental policies and conservation practices that transparently takes into consideration the voices of communities of color, indigenous communities, and migrant families.

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.
