Wild Campus was founded in 2011 by Quinn Morgan, a Wildlife Fisheries Conservation Biology major, graduated from UC Davis in 2012. It is a student-run, expert-advised, and community-supported program dedicated to the conservation of local wildlife on UC Davis campus and beyond.
Our mission is to:
1. Encourage local wildlife on and off campus through improvement of habitat for local wildlife, especially those of special concern and reduction in negative impacts of invasive species.
2. Increase public interest in wildlife conservation through educational events for all ages and facilitation of involvement in wildlife conservation.
3. Provide valuable experience to future conservation professionals by providing real world wildlife management experience to students; training students to effectively communicate science to the public; and putting students in contact with the expertise of faculty on campus.
4. Improve campus visitor experience through increased opportunities to observe wildlife and entertaining educational and community involvement events.
