Representing Women for Conservation, Founder and Executive Director Sara Lara hosted a booth and met with visitors at the Fall Wildlife Conservation Expo that is held annually by Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) in San Francisco. Each year, WCN gathers conservationists from around the world to exhibit and speak about their work that protects endangered wildlife globally. The expo offers a unique opportunity for supporters to unite, connect, network, and share stories about their experiences.
Today, Women for Conservation joins over 150 leading environmental and reproductive health organizations to pledge support for a first-of-its-kind campaign: Thriving Together, led by the Margaret Pyke Trust. Organizations that participate in Thriving Together form a diverse global alliance united by the agreement that improving access to family planning services is critically important for protecting the environment and biodiversity.
Uniting with several local organizations, Women for Conservation participated in the Fauquier Climate Change Rally in Warrenton, Virginia. The event raised awareness about the negative impact of climate change while advocating solutions to reduce global greenhouse emissions.
