The New York Aquarium Education Department is committed to helping teachers reach their goals to advance student achievement. Our Teaching Fellowship program is a unique opportunity for college students, recent graduates, and graduate students to explore conservation education in-depth. Fellows acquire the skills needed to conduct effective aquatic wildlife programs that invite and foster
student-directed learning, and learn pertinent information about local
and global conservation issues. In addition, Fellows will gain practical
applications in leading professional development workshops geared towards elementary and middle school educators. Emphasis is placed on the Wildlife Conservation Society’s efforts to protect wildlife and wild lands.
