WWF established the Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program to provide financial support to proven and potential conservation leaders in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to gain the needed knowledge and skills to address the conservation issues in their home countries. The program offers four initiatives as a means of raising awareness for worldwide conservation: Russell E. Train Fellowships, EFN Professional Development Grants, EFN Conservation Workshop Grants, and EFN Alumni Grants.
