Rahaf Al Saif, a graduate of Environmental Health Management from Canadian University Dubai is among a team of young people driving forward the international campaign for wildlife conservation as part of a newly formed global youth organization.
Youth4Wildlife Conservation (Y4WC) is a worldwide network of early-career conservationists, aiming to be pioneers, innovators, and instigators of positive change in the conservation arena. A committee member of the new organization, Rahaf has been taking a leading role.
According to Rahaf, the delegates were so motivated by their exchanges at the event that they took the initiative to establish Y4WC, to help create an international movement with a community focus. She explained. “The inspirational experience of the inaugural Youth Forum for People and Wildlife became a catalyst for the formation of Y4WC. Our mission is to support early-career wildlife conservationists with innovative ideas, empowering them to become facilitators of change in their local communities.”
