Welcome to the ‘Student Conservation Corner’

Where UC Davis students tell stories about wildlife and conservation science.


Over the last century, human wellbeing has greatly improved, even as populations exponentially increased. Yet improvements in human livelihoods came at the expense of Earth’s wildlife and ecosystems. As a result, our planet is experiencing more rapid change now than at any time in the past 10,000 years and we are facing a global biodiversity crisis. Our success in navigating existing and emerging environmental challenges will hinge on increasing awareness of people’s dependence and impacts on nature.

The ‘Student Conservation Corner’ is a forum for undergraduate students in the Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology at UC Davis to summarize the latest, cutting-edge conservation science and make it exciting and accessible for everyone. We hope you enjoy the results!
