Russel E. Train Education for Nature program

The Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) aims to build a dynamic and highly qualified corps of conservation leaders in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Established in 1994, EFN is dedicated to the late Russell E. Train, World Wildlife Fund's founding trustee, past president, former chairman of the board, and former chairman emeritus.

Through a number of initiatives that help build capacity of individuals and institutions, EFN provides potential and proven leaders with financial support for higher education, short-term training, and practical experience needed to take on conservation challenges in their home countries and regions.

Working with WWF's network of field offices, partner organizations, and training institutions, EFN targets those individuals with the potential to excel in their fields, create change, and inspire others to get involved in conservation.

EFN grantees have demonstrated leadership ability, excellence in their work, and commitment to conservation in their home countries and regions.
