The Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) was established in
1994 in honor of the late Russell E. Train, founder, past president, and chairman
emeritus of WWF. EFN supports proven and potential conservation leaders in
Africa, Asia, and Latin America. EFN enables these future leaders to enhance
their capacity to tackle environmental challenges in their home countries. To
date, EFN has invested more than US$14 million in these rising leaders to pursue
graduate studies, attend short-term training courses, and train communities and
conservation stakeholders around the world.
