2019 RAY Fellow Conservation Conversations

Please join our 2019 RAY Fellowship Program Conservation Conversation Series, celebrating the culmination of the third year of the RAY Marine Conservation Diversity Fellowship and successes of this year’s cohort. Throughout the year we have shared highlights of what the 2018 RAY Cohort has been up to, but that was just the tip of the iceberg! Starting Thursday, June 27th, the 2018 RAY Cohort, self-named #LemonadeConservation, will lead us on deep dives into their contributions, learnings, and experiences as RAY Fellows.

Conservation Conversations will occur as hour-long webinars via Zoom and registration is required. You will find the dates, times, registration links, and fellows hosting the upcoming webinars below. Information will also be posted on RAY social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram: @rayconservation) as well as on the RAY website. Webinars will be recorded and posted to our website, but we encourage you to log on in person to ask questions and hear directly from fellows!

Please forward this invitation to others in your network who may be interested, and reach out with any questions. We look forward to hosting you!
