The Young Conservation Scientists (YCS) program, offered at no cost to schools, helps local students appreciate the amazing ecosystems in Singapore by getting them out of the classroom and into nature. The program introduces our local flora and fauna and the environmental challenges they face. By showing them the impact that we as humans have on nature in our everyday lives we can also help them to understand our role in protecting nature. Through this program, students will develop skills in problem-solving, decision-making, awareness of biodiversity, and the conservation actions already being taken to protect it. Students participating in the program will have the opportunity to explore nature in Singapore and the surrounding islands with hands-on experience of conservation methods.

This immersive outdoor program will connect students to nature through fun and informative sessions. Students will learn the importance of biodiversity and explore how using conservation science and technology can support a sustainable ecosystem. The recipients of this program are presented with an exceptional opportunity to engage with Conservation International experts and scientists. Through this program, we aim to inspire the next generation of conservationists to be at the forefront of developing solutions that inform Singapore's national agenda on sustainable development.

All donations qualify for matching through the Tote Board Enhanced Fund-raising match.
