Bisbee's Fish and Wildlife Conservation Fund, Exotic Wildlife Association, Second Ark Foundation and Sul Ross University have established a scholarship fund for students wishing to pursue a degree in Exotic Wildlife Management. It is the first of its kind degree program in the country and is offered by Sul Ross University in Alpine Texas.
The first recipient of this scholarship is Destinee Love of Kerr County Texas who recently graduated from Harper High School last May. She has been actively involved in school activities and is an avid hunter and has hunted in Africa. She recently was awarded Huntress of the Year for 2013-2014 by EWA’s trophy game records. She is interested in pursuing a career in Wildlife Biology. The second scholarship award went to Jim Wyche, a graduate of Sul Ross University, who is continuing in the Masters Degree program Exotic Wildlife Management. Jim is currently conducting an intensive two-year study on the habits and range of the Aoudad Sheep in west Texas.
Bisbee's Fish and Wildlife Conservation Fund, with the coordination efforts of The Green Scholarship Program, and La Paz University of Mexico have also instituted the “Bisbee’s Marine Biology Scholarship Program” at La Paz University for Marine Biology. Our first set of scholarship recipients includes 12 students from the Los Cabos area. Wayne Bisbee (Fund President) believes that students blessed with the desire and propensity toward the environment and science, should have the opportunity to achieve higher education in order to go forth and make a difference in this world, irrespective their financial status or ethic diversity.
Wayne Bisbee says “we are very excited about this great opportunity to serve students and launch them into careers that will make this world a better place.” He adds “we are so excited that we want to substantially increase the amount of scholarships in the near future.”
The combined financial commitment for these programs thus far is over $125,000.
