Illini Wildlife and Conservation Club

private information

The Illini Wildlife and Conservation Club is a perfect fit for students interested in wildlife care and veterinary medicine, conservation, and international travel. Our club schedules local events, such as wet labs at the veterinary college, and hosts speakers ranging from wildlife veterinary researchers to conservation geneticists to international field biologists. We have planned behind-the-scenes trips to the Brookfield and St. Louis Zoos as well as the Shedd Aquarium. Students are given the opportunity to participate in study-abroad programs sponsored by the club; in the past, our members have enjoyed wonderful study-abroad experiences in Australia, Thailand, Costa Rica, Botswana, and China.
