Join in our newest interactive series highlighting diverse professionals in STEM careers called Not All Scientists Wear Lab Coats: A WCS Global Scientist Series. In each session, you’ll learn about a different conservation issue, meet a Wildlife Conservation Society staff member actively working on solutions, and discover how their unique pathway to a STEM career was influenced by their identity. Sessions are remote.

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.
