Wild Learning Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization was started by Stephanie Bradley, a Wildlife Conservation Educator who has been working professionally for the last 10+ years.  Originally from Texas Stephanie has worked at Zoos in Texas, New York City and New Jersey.  She has worked for a Wildlife Conservation NGO in Namibia, Africa and is now an educator for the Interpretive Association for the Cradle of Forestry in America, in western North Carolina that works in partnership with the US Forest Service. Stephanie's early education was primarily in Theatre as an Actor and Director and holds a BA in Theatre from Baylor University. 

After working in Zoos for many years Stephanie went back to school at NYU Steinhardt School of Education and studied to earn a MA in Environmental Conservation Education. Stephanie recently moved back to the United States after living abroad for 3 years working with the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia, Africa as Education Manager.

Stephanie has created the Wild Learning Project to provide wildlife education to her local community and children across the globe.  Her programs are designed to bring safe and interactive wildlife education to Pre-K through 12th grade classrooms, libraries and community groups of all ages. Programs explore wildlife with an emphasis on local predators and their role in maintaining healthy ecosystems, predator conservation locally and globally, and young peoples’ role in conservation and environmental education. Help Stephanie reach children in western North Carolina and around the world.  When people learn about wildlife, they become less fearful and are able to develop compassion for the natural world.
