GLA PROGRAM THEMES
ANIMAL & WILDLIFE CONSERVATION

Care for animals that have been injured, abandoned or threatened by loss of their natural habitat. This could include volunteering at a rescue.
Discover the role that sustainability plays in the long-term protection and restoration of unique wildlife in a changing climate.
