How to save a wild-life [Around the World]

It’s a numbing thought to consider that as we sit on our computers, watch our TVs, or scroll through our instagrams, wildlife across the world are literally fighting for their lives. And while we may not see the immediate causes of this fight – it is imperative that a global awareness for wildlife conservation is raised in order to conserve all remaining populations.

The Fleeting Gift [Britt’s Thoughts]

The other day while mindlessly watching TV, I happened to hear something said that quickly grabbed my attention… It was nothing extremely profound, yet it struck me as so. “Inspiration is fleeting” Yes, that is what I heard. Now let those words sink for…

Are you a wildlife tourist? [Research]

Why should you care? Ever been on a vacation where you have had the opportunity to get upclose and personal with some native wildlife? Perhaps you went to Hawaii and saw a sea-turtle laying lazily near the beach. Maybe you went to the Galapagos…

Brittnei and WSYC [Britt’s Thoughts]

Recently, Jake and I took our annual trip to Yosemite. While savoring the fresh air and looking in awe upon the granite walls surrounding us, we put together this short informational video for you to further understand what exactly Why You Should Care does – and why it was created.

There are two components to WSYC- Out in the field and and at home on your computer. Both components are aimed at helping the public better understand their connection to conservation topics. However, the in the field component requires a more hands-on approach to directly help conservation organizations, non-profits, and researchers understand how they are truly impacting their audiences and reaching their educational conservation goals.
