Why does human diversity matter to biodiversity? In this short film, students from around the country discuss identity, conservation and their future in the field.
The Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington is an eight-week, two-summer experience immersing undergraduate students in the practice of conservation. During the first week of the program we filmed peer-to-peer conversations between scholars in order to introduce storytelling as a tool to explore identity and celebrate authentic voice. We also made portraits of each student to use for professional development opportunities.
