Celebrating World Frog Day

With Yovana Murillo, DV of WCS in Andes Amazon and Orinoco Region

Frogs are one of many highly trafficked wildlife groups often used in the pet trade and for consumption. As a leader and coordinator of the first WCS Combating Wildlife Trafficking Initiative in the Andes Amazon Orinoco region, Yovana Murillo’s principal motivation “is contributing positive changes for our environment and wild species.” While authorities carry out some actions, the role of citizens in prevention is essential. Yovana will reflect on how her multilingual, Peruvian veterinarian background has committed her passions to wild animal conservation for the last ten years. To celebrate World Frog Day, join us in exploring the need to reduce wildlife trafficking.


NOT ALL SCIENTISTS WEAR LAB COATS
Conservation issues remain a critical emphasis in the STEM field. Facing issues such as illegal wildlife trafficking, the climate crisis, plastics pollution, and zoonotic disease spread, WCS professionals are leading the way in innovative and exciting ways to identify solutions. Join us for our newest interactive series exploring STEM careers. In each session, you’ll learn about a different conservation issue, meet a WCS staff member actively working on solutions, and discover how their unique pathway to a STEM career was influenced by their identity.
