Canada’s New Noah
The Canada’s New Noahs program is a highly valued opportunity for young biologists in Canada. Since 1990, it has filled a gap in conservation education in this country, providing practical training and field experience in managing and conserving endangered species.
The program was designed by WPC scientific advisor Richard Fyfe, a pioneer in Canadian species conservation. Each year, more than 150 candidates – including Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. level students, practising wildlife biologists, and veterinarians – request applications for the single, coveted position.
- To train young Canadian biologists in the techniques required to breed endangered species in captivity, reintroduce them into the wild, and manage wild populations.
- To give young Canadian biologists practical field experience with in situ conservation projects that complement their academic training.
- To create a network of skilled Canadian conservation biologists who focus on endangered and threatened species.
- To increase public awareness in Canada about endangered species and the progress being made to save them from extinction.
