2015 Russell E. Train Fellowships - Valuing Standing Forests

Forests are more than just a collection of trees—they are integrated ecosystems that are home to 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. When forests are lost or degraded, their destruction sets off a series of changes that have both local and global implications.

This year, WWF’s Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) is offering a fellowship opportunity for research that enhances our understanding of the true value of forests and investigates mechanisms and strategies to communicate, facilitate, and implement standing forest conservation.
