Duke Conservation Society (DCS)
The Duke Conservation Society is a student group focusing on contemporary conservation issues and solutions. We cover a variety of fields and explore multiple forms of conservation including wildlife, land trusts, market-based, community-based, and policy-based among others. Our vision is to provide a resource for students and future conservationists in finding solutions to our natural world’s most pressing problems.
- Enhance students’ understanding of the various scientific, political, economic and managerial tools available to address conservation issues
- Facilitate collaborations between undergraduates, MEM & PhD students of the Nicholas school on conservation related projects and analysis
- Provide opportunities for professional development in terms networking with professionals, seminars and talks from guest speakers and career resources and advice.
