How Las Huellas Supports Conservation Education in South Texas

Las Huellas promotes conservation efforts in a variety of ways, including corporate partnerships and donation matching. In addition, we’re happy to support conservation education in our community through our endowed fund and youth education.

The Las Huellas Endowment Fund

In partnership with the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV), Las Huellas has established the Las Huellas Association Endowed Fund to support conservation education at the UTRGV College of Science. The $500,000 fund is used to provide scholarships for wildlife protection education with a focus on hands-on learning.

Youth Conservation Education

Las Huellas is proud to host an annual event to educate children in our community on valuable hunting rules, shooting safety rules, and outdoor tips. The Youth Hunter Education Training Certification class is a fantastic opportunity for us to ensure future generations’ enthusiasm for the outdoors.

The Importance of Conservation Education

Conservation itself has a wide range of benefits, from protecting ecosystems and endangered animals to supporting natural processes that are essential for human survival as well as the environment. Conservation education has its unique advantages:

  • Prepare the Conservationists of Tomorrow – Eco-protection and conservation is critical for the planet, and we need properly educated people to facilitate that work.
  • Inspire Environmental Advocacy – Understanding the importance of environmental protection is the first step toward becoming an advocate.
  • Increase Environmental Awareness – Being more educated on the environment can help you appreciate the ways you impact it.
  • Prepare for Future Ecological Challenges – Students need to be prepared to adapt to challenges posed by future ecological issues.
  • Promote Sustainability – Sustainability is key to protecting our environment, and eco-education can help promote sustainable habits.
