The state of Wisconsin has a proud legacy of conservationists such as John Muir
and Aldo Leopold, and many of our universities offer excellent programs in conservation
biology. In order to stimulate interest and excellence in the field of conservation
biology, the Zoological Society created the Wildlife Conservation Grants for
Student Research. The program offered financial incentives to graduate students
throughout the state of Wisconsin who had been conducting wildlife conservation research.
Students were awarded up to $2,000 each on a competitive basis. Over a 14-year period, the Society funded 170 proposals ($271,455).
