We only have one shot at keeping our planet clean and habitable. Biological restoration and conservation efforts are essential now more than ever to protect wildlife across the globe.
For many wildlife biologists and conservation professionals, there are many financial barriers that hinder their ability to truly protect the Earth.
To support conservation and the efforts of those who have been historically marginalized from science and conservation, the Understory Studio Conservation Scholarship exists and will be given to one undergraduate student.
